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.
