Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmygal urged to stay at home for Easter. He said this at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on April 21, 2021, reports the Information and Educational Department of the UOC.
Denis Shmyhal noted that “the situation with the coronavirus in Ukraine is stabilizing, but this does not mean that we can return to mass festivities, parties, crowds,” and said that the Cabinet of Ministers extended quarantine in Ukraine until June 30, 2021.
“The government is extending the state of emergency and, accordingly, quarantine until June 30. This regime primarily concerns state authorities and their constant readiness to counter the pandemic. At the same time, this is another reminder to all Ukrainians that we must remain prudent and careful,” he said.
According to the head of the Cabinet of Ministers, especially prudence and conscientiousness should be shown during the May holidays and Easter.
“These days we urge people to stay at home <…> Mass gatherings of people on Easter can lead to a new wave of morbidity,” the Prime Minister noted and added that the authorities will discuss the issue of holding Easter holidays in compliance with anti-epidemic measures with the All-Ukrainian Council of Churches and religious organizations on Friday 23 April.
