"I don't see any help from the local authorities due to the fact that we were sent to quarantine. We haven't heard any answers whether they will help us. Some are closed like we are and others work. But we want to hear from the authorities, "We have been sent away, and do whatever you want. But we don't know how to support the family. We haven't heard a specific answer as to what we should be like," Shkrobanets said.
