Explanation on new restrictive measures for the quarantine period
Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmigal has published a complete list of new restrictions adopted by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine through a coronavirus. Additional measures are introduced from 6 April.
More than ever, shipping and sailors are the lifeblood of the world.
And without efficient and safe transportation of food, medical supplies, raw materials and fuels, which are carried out by sea, countries may be faced with an even more difficult situation than that in which we already found ourselves because of COVID-19. This was emphasized by the Secretary General of the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) Guy Platten.
Sailors from vessels arriving at ports of Ukraine are prohibited from leaving the board
For crew members of ships that arrive at the ports of Ukraine, there is a ban on going ashore and leaving the border crossing point. Such restrictions apply only to foreign citizens, as specified in the press service of the Administration of the Seaports of Ukraine (AMPU).
When entering Ukraine, sailors were allowed not to isolate themselves
Despite the fact that in Ukraine, like many other countries of the world, quarantine measures have been introduced at the national level in connection with the threat of the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine stated that drivers should not sign consent to self-isolation upon entering the country, crew of airplanes, ships and trains.
