President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky believes in the rapid return of Ukrainians, evacuated from China, to their families. He said this during a speech at a business forum, which was broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV Channel.

He added that he was concerned about the behavior of Ukrainians who had opposed the placement of evacuees in the sanatoriums that were located near the inhabited areas.

"Honestly, we keep saying that Ukraine is Europe. So yesterday, frankly, in some episodes, it seemed like we were Medieval Europe, unfortunately. We should not forget that we are all humans," the head of state noted.

As we reported earlier, Ukraine's Ministry of Internal Affairs reported that the citizens of Ukraine that had been evacuated from China would be sent to Novi Sanzhary sanitarium. This evoked the outrage of the locals.

The protesters collided with the representatives of the law enforcement bodies. Some of them were detained.

As of now, the situation in the settlement remains to be calm. The medical center is being patrolled by police officers.
