President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky was fined for the violation of quarantine restrictions during his working visit to Khmelnytskyi region. The president stated this during a conversation with journalists in Chernihiv, a Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"You can take off the mask, it is better to hear, or it will be like in Khmelnytskyi region, I will be fined, and, in principle, they did it right," he told reporters.
As we reported earlier, on June 3, the President and his delegation arrived on an official visit to Khmelnytskyi, where they took a walk through the central part of the city and tasted coffee in a local coffee shop, which, according to the resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers, had to be quarantined.
It was not the first time when the police had to fine Zelensky.
"When Volodymyr Zelensky showed his ballot in April 2019, he was fined for violation of the confidentiality of voting. Therefore, the competent police bodies will examine this issue," Ukraine's Deputy Interior Minister Anton Herashchenko stated.
