    That’s what they did during the entire Corona virus.Were you allowed to go out? This is a decision taken during the time of pandemic. It’s different than a normal time. There should be restrictions in every field. We can’t do what we want.
    Government needs money in this dire situation. It’s not possible to keep the country completely shut. If they get the money, it’s not a problem. But who knows...

    I admit I have other doubts ....
    1. Why Ukrainians?
    2. How much they expend in SL?
    3. They can easily spread the new form of virus in SL.

    Maybe it's a pilot program, testing the waters - to see if they can at least partially resurrect tourism without exposing locals to the virus

    Sad, they didn't express any desire to visit Madamulana.

    You cannot go out if there is a threat to you and other locals and it is understandable. But simply banning Sri Lankans from visiting these sites because there are some outsiders visiting them cannot be tolerated. What is the next step if some more tourists starts visiting Sri Lanka? Ban Sri Lankans from Sri Lanka? Gov can ask locals not to visit these sites but they cannot ban them. This action has other motives IMO.

    All those who say it's ok for this to happen, say it because they themselves aren't affected by it.
    Purely short-sighted thinking along govt's misguided, muddled lines!

    1. Why Ukrainians? - Because of mr. thief weeratnge and ss made lot of money thanks to ukrainians.
    2. How much they expend in SL? - People who involved in tourism know how Ukrainians spend.
    3. They can easily spread the new form of virus in SL. - who cares?
