"Today, this is a message for the business that it may prepare for the opening," Shmygal said.
He explained that small businesses would be able to start operating on May 11.
"Starting From May 11, we envisage the easing of quarantine restrictions. It includes the opening of parks, squares, playgrounds, catering establishments, shops of non-food groups of companies. This will be implemented according to the relevant norms, parameters, protocols, prescribed by the Ministry of Health, the chief sanitary doctor, in order to ensure the safety of citizens ... easing of the lockdown leads to the start of small and medium-sized businesses. This decision was made in order for the business to be able to prepare by May 11 — it is both the purchase of goods and disinfection," he stated.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers will launch a program of loans for small and medium-sized businesses under state guarantees.
