Starting February 14, the Russian government plans to suspend charter flights to China, where there was an outbreak of coronavirus. Now such flights are carried out in order to take Russian tourists out of the PRC.

As Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said at a briefing, regular flights will continue - they are operated between Moscow and the four cities of China. The government does not see any reason for the complete closure of flights with China.

Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree temporarily restricting the entry of foreigners into Russia from China. They will be launched only at Sheremetyevo. An exception will be made for citizens of the member states of the Eurasian Economic Union, as well as crews of aircraft, members of official delegations and persons holding a residence permit in the Russian Federation.

Meanwhile, all organized groups of Russian tourists who were on the Chinese island of Hainan returned to Russia. Tour operators took 5,6 thousand organized tourists with additional charter flights.
