The arrival of pilgrims from Israel to Uman to celebrate the Jewish New Year Rosh Hashanah will be possible if they hold documents to confirm vaccination against coronavirus.

As Ukrinform reports citing the press service of the National Police, Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov said this during talks with his Israeli counterpart Arie Deri.

In addition, the parties agreed that the key condition for the arrival of pilgrims will be the normalization of the epidemiological situation in Ukraine.

"In cooperation with our Israeli colleagues, Ukrainian law enforcement officers are ready to organize a safe stay of pilgrims from Israel. There are no obstacles if the arriving tourists have the appropriate documents confirming vaccination against COVID-19," Avakov said.

The Ministers of Internal Affairs of Ukraine and Israel also discussed the possibility of assistance from the Israeli side in overcoming the next wave of diseases in Ukraine by delivering a batch of vaccine from Israel, where the vaccination campaign of the population was successfully held.

As reported, last year, during the Rosh Hashanah celebration, Uman introduced enhanced anti-epidemic measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection. At the same time, the Israeli government sent its police representatives to help Ukrainian law enforcement officers monitor law and order during the celebration.
