The Verkhovna Rada changed the working schedule on March 16; for almost two months, there were no plenary sessions held in the session hall. The MPs worked in committees.
Earlier, Kyiv mayor Vitaliy Klitschko turned to the government, asking to resume the work of the underground in the Ukrainian capital. "Today, when more and more people get back to their work, there's a collapse going on in the city. And we will insist on the resuming of the underground's work", he said. Klitschko insisted that citizens still should observe Heathcare Ministry's recommendations to avoid further spread of Covid-19. According to him, the underground should be working in the usual mode, which would lift the excessive load on the transport network and let all public transport work normally.
