For all events that will take place, we will respond very quickly and respond in time. The National Police and police of Cherkasy region serve in the enhanced regime,” Klymenko reported.
The Head of Ukraine’s police also added that the presence of the law enforcers is temporarily enhanced at the airports.
“We work together with border, migration services to allow people to enter and celebrate the holiday in safety,” he added.
This year, Rosh Hashanah will take place on September 7-8. Its celebration in Uman is tied with the fact that Rabbi Nachman is buried there. His grave is one of the most worshiped relics and places of pilgrimage of Hasidim.
In 2020, Rosh Hashanah was celebrated on September 18-20. Since September 14, about 1,000 Hasidim pilgrims tried to enter Ukraine, despite the restrictions for entry of foreigners.
On September 18, the Hasidim pilgrims, who were not allowed to enter Ukraine celebrate Rosh Hashanah in Belarusian cities Pinsk and Gomel.
