The Chinese authorities will not open the land border for Russian residents, despite the decision of the Russian government to resume the work of checkpoints from April 9. This was reported on the official website of the Chinese Embassy in Russia.
According to the WeChat public account of the Chinese Embassy in Russia, some media reported that Russia will lift restrictions on April 9, allowing Russian citizens and foreign citizens to enter and exit Russia through the Russian-Chinese land border ports.
The Chinese Embassy in Russia hereby reminds citizens of the two countries that the above reports are not true. In view of the current serious epidemic situation, China-Russia border land ports still implement the "people stop goods pass" mode, that is, goods are allowed to pass through customs, but not for personnel. The personnel exchanges between China and Russia are still guaranteed by flights.
