A brawl is observed in Novi Sanzhary settlement of the Poltava region, central Ukraine. Law enforcers push the people away from the bridge that leads to the sanitarium; they blocked the road, trying to create a cordon for the buses with Ukrainians who returned from China.
Some people are beaten up. Some men have been brought across the police corridor; perhaps, they were detained.
There are ambulance cars in the nearby vicinities. Foul words are spoken and tires are set on fire.
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.
Novi Sanzhary village council stated that there are no conditions and means for the treatment of people diseased with coronavirus or for the provision of quarantine.
