On May 2, a picnic area may appear under the windows of the Office of the President of Ukraine. It will be arranged by the city's restaurateurs in protest against the ban on the operation of summer terraces due to the Covid-19 quarantine. Co-owner of the Tarantino family Dmytro Fedotenkov wrote this in the social network, Strana.ua wrote.
He explained that all the tables on the improvised summer terrace had already been booked, but nevertheless the organizers invited MP Mykola Tyshchenko, whose restaurant continued to host distinguished guests in spite of the quarantine, as well as representatives of the Ministry of Health. He said he would definitely keep a table for Volodymyr Zelensky.
"Tomorrow, as planned, we open a summer terrace of an experimental type. On the square in front of the Presidential Office. It's our application for a secular lunch is in the building of the Kyiv City State Administration. I hope that no surprises and difficulties will happen," Fedotenkov writes in social networks.
He explains that the event is supposed to be peaceful, and the menu is delicious.
“Let me remind you that all the tables will be located at a distance of more than one and a half meters. The waiters work in masks and gloves, and the guests have the same dress code. Those who do not have masks will get them upon the entrance. We will lubricate our hands with an antiseptic. There’s no more than two people [per a table]. All tables have already been booked," the report said.

“I want to emphasize that summer terraces are already working in Europe, and more precisely in Cherkasy, and no one is initiating criminal cases because of this, and the business has the opportunity to restore its activities. I hope that the same story will happen soon with us,” wrote the co-owner of the restaurant.
