EU closes borders to foreigners

Germany urged to lift sanctions against Russia because of the coronavirus

According to the head of the German government, all participants of the meeting unanimously supported the recommendation of the European Commission about the temporary closure of borders. It is noteworthy that it will spread to the UK, which has designed the “divorce” with the EU in the framework of the “brekzita”, as well as Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Iceland (part of the Schengen but not in EU). However, residents of these States will be able to pass through the EU in transit. Germany started to implement the ban immediately. The edition writes that at the international airports of Frankfurt / main, which is the business capital of Germany, and the Bavarian of Munich, patrimony of the interior Minister Horst Seehofer, law enforcement authorities have already taken the border under strict control. According to Reuters, exceptions are made only for certain categories of persons – for example, doctors and other professionals to combat the coronavirus, carriers of drugs, families of diplomats and EU citizens.
