The states of Europe, the USA, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and other countries, in whole or in part, impose restrictions on the entry of foreigners into the territory due to the spread of the coronavirus. Measures are introduced for a period of two weeks to a month, or until the epidemiological situation stabilizes.

On March 14, the government of Ukraine adopted an order to temporarily restrict the crossing of the state border, aimed at preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Ukraine.

On the evening of March 26, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in his address regarding the fight against coronavirus, announced the closure of the state border for all Ukrainians who will not have time to return home by the end of the day on March 27. Since March 28, the state border has been closed, all passenger traffic has been stopped.

– No one will forget about a single Ukrainian who will stay abroad. We will gradually return you from abroad, but taking into account the epidemic situation at the place of your stay, as well as the level of provision with the necessary funds and the readiness of the medical system for your mandatory isolation, the head of state noted.

Zelensky also stressed that “no politician or businessman in state and communal hospitals will have better conditions than an ordinary Ukrainian.” All sick people will be in those wards and those hospitals that “in 28 years you have built in this country.”

Perhaps there is nothing more surprising and impressive than discovering new countries, new cultures, cities, uniquely beautiful places. Travel is life. This is what always gives strength, energy, and desire to go forward. It's so hard to wake up early for work, but it's so easy - to the airport or to the train =) I am also a fan of psychology. I believe that it is impossible to have a harmonious relationship with yourself and with the people around you, without understanding anything about our inner world. Many world-famous authors set out their thoughts in books, they are very smart and talented people who share their knowledge and experience. There is nothing easier than buying a book and learning something new from the geniuses of psychology. Our feelings and emotions are very multifaceted. We all perceive the world in different ways and we need to be able to respect and understand this. Everything that we wish will certainly come true, you need to be able to dream about it correctly. The universe does not limit anyone. It is full of supplies for each of us. Psychology is a very important science for humanity. The more the world develops, the more people understand this. The more we are tolerant to ourselves and to all people, the more good there will be in our lives and in the whole world. Development is the driving force behind humanity. We simply cannot afford to stand still, otherwise, our life loses all meaning. Every day, discovering something new for ourselves, we move forward towards our goals.
