Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers has extended the lockdown in Ukraine until May 22. However, some easing is expected. Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal announced this during an extraordinary session of the government. The broadcast was provided by 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"The lockdown will be extended until May 22. We will continue looking at how the situation with the pandemic will develop worldwide and how the things with fluctuation of the morbidity curve will go on," Shmygal said.
At the same time, there may be some easing for businesses if sanitary measures are taken.
So, that is what should be expected to start from May 11: the opening of parks, squares, recreation areas, beauty salons, summer venues of food establishments, libraries, museums.
As we reported earlier, on May 3, on Independence Square in Kyiv, representatives of small businesses gathered for a protest rally, demanding permission to work during the quarantine period.
The action was attended by entrepreneurs from six regions of Ukraine: Vinnytsia, Zakarpattia, Lviv, Kharkiv, Khmelnytsky, and Chernihiv regions.
