President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated that it was not necessary to hurry up with an extension of the lockdown for more than a month. He said this during a conference call with representatives of the government and law enforcement agencies, the presidential press service reports.

"We do not need to hurry up with the extension of quarantine for a long time, we need to act depending on the development of the situation. Everyone is tired of this lockdown. We need a clear framework for its prolongation so that people have opportunities to live safely, so that business functions properly, so that economy is active. Therefore, we extend it for a month, but not longer," the president said.
