The Government of the Russian Federation has named the conditions under which citizens of the EAEU are allowed to enter Russia from Armenia and Belarus. Experts see this as a trend to restore passenger traffic within the economic community of the five states, but admit that there are many questions regarding the implementation and expansion of this format.
Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree allowing citizens of the EAEU member states from Armenia and Belarus to enter Russia from February 1 to March 1, 2021. Let us recall that five countries are members of the Eurasian Economic Union: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia.
Crossing the Russian state border is possible through air checkpoints of the Russian Federation, provided that passengers present valid identity documents recognized by the Russian side as such, as well as a negative test result for COVID-19.
In addition, according to the order, test results must be displayed in the Travel COVID-19 Free mobile application.
The document also approves a list of 20 air checkpoints across the state border through which these citizens can enter the Russian Federation, including all airports in the Moscow region and airports in other regions of Russia.
The experts that ATOR Vestnik spoke to draw attention to a number of issues that require clarification.
Firstly, this is the status of air communication with the EAEU countries. At the moment, the Russian Federation has officially resumed air traffic only with Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Belarus.
From September 2020, one flight per week to Nur-Sultan, Bishkek and Minsk is allowed. Later, the quota on the Belarusian route was increased to three flights per week. Flights to Armenia are carried out in the status of cargo and passenger, regular air traffic, suspended in March 2020, has not been resumed.
The situation may change in the coming days. According to the Armenian media, Prime Minister of the republic Nikol Pashinyan said at a government meeting that Armenia and the Russian Federation will resume flights from February 1 within the framework of a pilot project from February 1 to March 1. According to Mr. Pashinyan, it was an initiative of Armenia, "which found support from Russian colleagues."
