Abstract
This article is devoted to the impact of COVID-19 on the migration crisis and its consequences on freedom of movement within the European Union. The authors analyze the main and important documents adopted by both the European Union and its Member States on restriction of freedom of movement in view of the rapid spread and exacerbation of the coronavirus pandemic in the world. The research established that the legal basis for the implementation of freedom of movement of persons is regulated by a number of international legal documents and the system of EU acquis. The authors prove that the freedom of movement of persons in the European Union is one of the key provisions on which the whole system of European Union law is based. This article stipulates that freedom of movement is based on the provisions of the founding agreements on the citizenship of the Union and the free movement of workers, acts of secondary EU legislation, the content of international agreements concluded with third countries and international organizations, as well as the activities of EU institutions on the regulation of processes related to the movement of persons in the territory of the European Union. This article proves that the provisions on the free movement of persons apply to all categories of citizens of EU Member States engaged in economic activities.
