President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky appears not to have coronavirus, but due to infection of his wife, he switches to a special mode of operation. The press service of the Office of the President reports this.
Zelensky will continue to fulfill his duties, because he cannot delegate his authority to anyone.
"Situations of self-isolation and quarantine were not provided for in the Constitution of Ukraine. That is why a special protocol of the President’s work regime was adopted, which meets both the norms of the current legislation and the sanitary and epidemiological requirements," the statement said.
Thus, Zelensky will be daily tested for coronavirus. In addition, in the next few days he will not take part in mass events and will not travel outside of Kyiv. The president will not hold personal meetings yet, and meetings with his participation will be online. The circle of persons with whom Zelensky will be able to communicate personally is narrowed to his guard and his closest assistants.
It should be noted that in the event of an emergency that requires an immediate response from the President, within his constitutional powers, Zelensky will not be able to adhere to these restrictions.
As we reported before, Olena Zelenska, the first lady and the wife of President of Ukraine received a positive test result for Covid-19.
