The president’s office urges Ukrainians to stay home for Easter.
To prevent the spread of the coronavirus in Ukraine, the authorities have agreed with a representative of religious denominations, so that this year people will watch the Easter service at home and not come to church.
It is reported by the “NPF” referring to Press service OPU.
You can watch the festive service using an online TV broadcast. Several Ukrainian TV channels will broadcast services of various faiths:
- Ukrainian Greco-Catholic Church (UGCC) – April 19, from 7:30 am to 11:00 am, broadcast on ICTV and UA: Pershiy;
- Ukrainian Orthodox Church (PCU) – starting at 23:00 on April 18, ending at 03:00 on April 19, broadcast on “1 + 1” and UA: Pershiy;
- Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC MP) – Beginning at 23:00 on April 18, ending at 03:00 on April 19, broadcast on INTER and UA: Pershiy.
Recall that we previously reported that 85% of Ukrainians will not go to church at Easter.
