Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal said that the Cabinet of Ministers had prepared additional measures to support businesses and people who had lost part of their income due to the introduction of the weekend lockdown. This was stated by Shmygal at a conference call on preventing the spread of coronavirus, the press service of the Office of the President of Ukraine reports.
"Denys Shmygal said that the government was already implementing and preparing additional measures to support businesses and people who had lost part of their income due to the weekend lockdown," the statement said.
In particular, the government is resuming its support for small businesses with children and a partial unemployment program, when part of the worker's salary is compensated.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba stated that Ukraine could close its borders if the Ukrainian government introduced a total lockdown.
"However, with the introduction of a weekend quarantine, we managed to avoid the option of full lockdown, so in the near future, I do not expect consideration of this issue on the session of the government," reads the message.
