Stepanov was asked when the Ukrainians will be warned about the introduction of the complete lockdown:
“I believe that a week or 10 days [prior to that], it will be done. At least, we as the Health Ministry will be able to do it. The same situation as with the weekend quarantine, before its introduction, at the meeting of the government on Wednesday in a week before it, we have started to say that we have such an initiative and we want to implement it, why it is so and what we are going to do,” the minister said.
