Most of Kyiv's entrepreneurs have been observing the lockdown restrictions. Head of the State Service of Supplies and Consumers Policy Oleg Ruban reported that in an interview with Ukraine 24 TV channel.
According to him, 90 percent of entrepreneurs live up to the lockdown rules. "In general, one could say that business people in Kyiv are quite well-adjusted and socially reponsible (...) But there are those who break thesse rules, too. Unfortunately, administrative violations are observed and fines are applied every day", Ruban said.
Since the lockdown was imposed, the Service compiled 20 administrative protocols about cases of violations of restrictions.
The fine for breaching the lockdown in Ukraine makes from USD 607,000 to USD 1.2 million.
Earlier, Healthcare Minister Maksym Stepanov said that information about the alleged ban on the sale of certain non-grocery goods during the lockdown was fake. "I saw this information that emerged on the Internet; it's untrue. During the period from January 8 to 25, they can sell food in the trading areas, where at least 60 percent of the area serves to sell food products, drugs, medical goods, hygiene products, communication devices, veterinary products, seeds, and plant protection goods", Stepanov said.
During the lockdown, other groups of goods can be ordered and delivered online. As for the household chemicals, Stepanov said that the government would still have to make some corrections during the session on January 5. According to him, the government compiled the list of goods allowed for sale, considering that the lockdown would last for 16 days.
