Verkhovna Rada, the Ukrainian Parliament will abandon the quarantine on May 18. Davyd Arakhamia, the head of parliamentary faction of Servant of the People party submitted the respective bill (No.3434) for the Parliament's consideration.
The draft decree aims to get back to the normal working mode of plenary sessions - in the session hall.
On March 16, the Verkhovna Rada changed its working schedule due to coronavirus threat in Ukraine. MPs have been working in committees since then. Initially, the deadline was April 3, but the decree's duration was extended until the end of the lockdown.
Previously, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine passed the decree stating that the quarantine would be over on May 22 - with certain mitigations. Parks, recreation areas, beauty salons, outdoor spaces in restaurants and cafes, libraries and museums will open their doors on May 11.
The Cabinet will also allow the work of civil law notaries, dentists, auditors, as well as trading of non-grocery foods - except for food courts, entertainment areas and cinema theaters in shopping malls.
