On Wednesday, July 15, the Russian authorities of the occupied Crimea canceled the mandatory two-week observation for all foreigners entering the territory of the peninsula, including Ukrainians. The corresponding decree was signed by the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova.

Foreigners who want to visit the occupied Crimea only need to provide a document in Russian or English with a negative coronavirus test taken no earlier than three days before arrival or do a PCR test on the peninsula within three days at their own expense.

It is noted that isolation at the place of residence or stay is mandatory only for those who, upon return, will feel unwell or will receive a positive test result for a new coronavirus infection.
