Buses with the Ukrainians evacuated from China's Wuhan reached the settlement of Novi Sanzhary, Poltava region.
The law enforcers cleared the path across the bridge, as protesters armed with sticks, cans, and stones tried to attack the buses. Some of these actually had their windows broken, Strana.ua reported.
The local activists are enraged; they protest against the decision to bring the evacuated people to Novi Sanzhary. A reporter of 112 Ukraine TV channel said people cried and shouted foul words.
As is known, the civilian aircraft that carried Ukrainians evacuated from Wuhan landed in Kharkiv. All those aboard were claimed healthy, there was no suspicion for coronavirus. The Interior Ministry reported that the citizens would be sent to Novi Sanzhary sanitarium. This evoked the outrage of the locals.
Earlier, Novi Sanzhary village authorities stated that there are no conditions and means for the treatment of people diseased with coronavirus or for the provision of quarantine.
