The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine made the decision, which obliges all those who arrived in Ukraine to undergo the observation procedure. It is supposed to last for 14 days. Viktor Lyashko, the Deputy Healthcare Minister and the Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine said so at a briefing. 

"You know that the border of Ukraine is closed for visiting. At the same time, there are cases when Ukrainian citizens keep returning, one way or another. This is why they will be observed in the places defined by the regional state administrations, for 14 days. Only after that, they will be allowed into the territory of Ukraine without the restrictions of other rights and freedoms," he said.

Besides, all those considered Covid-19-contacts will be required to self-isolate at home or in the designated observation places.

Lyashko admitted that the observation will be roughly controlled. "This is why criminal responsibility is foreseen as well; it is envisaged in the law on combating the coronavirus disease", the official concluded.
