Occupation authorities of the "DNR" banned Ukrainians who do not have registration in the uncontrolled territories from entering CADO through Russia. Separatist media wrote this. Crossing the uncontrolled section of border with Russia, residents of free Ukraine need to obtain permission from a certain anti-coronavirus headquarters.

These restrictions were explained by the need to contain the spread of COVID-19, the main source of which is Ukraine according to the occupiers. At the same time, the flow of Russians entering the uncontrolled territory of CADO and Ukrainians registered in the occupation zone is not yet controlled in any way.
