Golikova told a briefing that the country's COVID-19 response center has made the decision, which waits to be officially approved by the prime minister.

As part of anti-coronavirus measures, Russia imposed a temporary entry ban on Chinese nationals with visas for work, private visits, study and tourism since Feb. 20, 2020.

Russia is expanding the list gradually as the country is cautiously opening borders to more countries.
