Ukraine will cancel all passenger flights after March 16 in an attempt to curb the spread of COVID-19, according to Parliament Speaker Dmytro Razumkov.

The ban on flights will come into force at midnight on March 17, Razumkov said on the NewsOne TV channel late on March 13. He didn’t specify when the restrictions would end.

Land border crossings will stay open, but will only allow Ukrainian nationals to return to the country.
