On September 3, 600 police officers from 12 regions of Ukraine arrived in the city, including the patrol police, operational staff, dog handlers and bomb experts.
Earlier, the State Emergency Service of Ukraine said it would implement all necessary measures to provide the security during the celebration of Rosh Hashanah.

As it was reported last year, the Hasid pilgrims from around the globe keep coming to Ukraine to celebrate the New Year according to the Jewish calendar. In 2017, Uman hosted about 30,000 Hasidic Jews, who came to honor the memory of their spiritual leader Rabbi Nachman at his grave on the eve of Rosh Hashanah.
