While the sportsman was crossing the Dnieper, a dozen policemen were waiting for him on the other side.

A training session was worth 17,000 hryvnias (630 dollars) for violation of quarantine.


In Ternopil, because of quarantine, a woman did not let her husband home, when he returned from work in Poland.

“Law is for everyone, no one canceled the 14-day observation,” Ternopil woman thought.

The man had no choice but to spend the first day on the street.

On the second day he turned to the police. The police have already sent the man to one of the medical institutions designed for such citizens who have nowhere to spend the self-isolation period upon returning to the territory of Ukraine.

By the way, people who came from abroad for violation of self-isolation must pay the fine from 630 to 1,255 dollars.



In Kyiv, the police stopped a woman driver in order to involve as a witness in the case of a drunk driver, but she herself turned out to be drunk and had a pack of cannabis with her (5 transparent bags presumably with narcotic).


In Zhytomyr region, a pile of granite was left on the road so that people would not come for barbecues during the quarantine.

Locals put granite slabs and debris on the road and attached sign ‘Quarantine’ on top.

As noted, such a step can be explained by the difficult financial situation in the state and the fact that the public must be involved in the implementation and it is now difficult to do.

"This service will be more effective if the public joins all the ideas that have been laid out. It is impossible to implement these ideas in a difficult financial situation, when all the money is spent for fighting the coronavirus. It is unlikely that anyone will return to this as a separate structure, because we all see that ... I’m saying that it’s better to implement all this together with active citizens, volunteers, ” spokeswoman of the head of the happiness service in Kherson region Maryna Voloshenko said.
