The Ukrainian government has decided to increase subsidies for the lockdown period. Prime Minister of Ukraine, Denys Shmygal, stated this during meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers, which broadcasted on 112 Ukraine TV channel.
The government also simplified the provision of subsidies to those who lost their jobs during the quarantine period.
"On average, the increase in subsidies for Ukrainians will be $9. The mechanism should work after the adoption of the law on the stabilization fund," - the prime minister said.
In addition, the government banned the deprivation of housing subsidies for Ukrainians during the quarantine period. The chairmen of the Regional States Administrations, together with local governments, must ensure that these conditions are met.
As we reported before, the Cabinet of Ministers has prolonged a lockdown across the country for 30 days.
The government also has made the decision to introduce an emergency situation in Ukraine for a period of 30 days. Thus, it is expected to end on April 24, 2020.
