The mayor of Zaporizhya city Volodymyr Buryak was given a summon to appear before the police in the case of refusing to stop public transport. He announced this on his Facebook page.

The criminal case was launched after the mayor's statement on the operation of public transport in Zaporizhya, contrary to the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers.

"This morning, law enforcement officers came to my office and handed the summons on the criminal case. The reason is that the city authorities allegedly did not comply with the Cabinet’s decision to suspend public transport in the city," - the mayor said.

He also noted that the number of residents of Zaporizhya infected with coronavirus is growing - today there are already 20 of them. At the same time, he believes that public transport in the city should not be stopped, because people need to go to hospitals, as well as go to sick or elderly people who need care.

As we reported before, the number of people infected with coronavirus infection in Ukraine increased to 2,203 cases.
