In the context of a coronavirus pandemic, crowding of citizens increases the risks of COVID-19 infection. Once again, we earnestly ask our fellow citizens who are on the territory of Russia not to make attempts to leave the checkpoints of the Russian-Kazakh interstate border, to stay in the places of their current stay and strictly observe all quarantine measures.
A special republican commission is considering the possibilities of intensifying and diversifying flights from Russia with a view to the early return of Uzbek citizens to their homeland.
