Poroshenko approves mitigation of quarantine and seeks compensation from small businesses
Mitigating quarantine is a good economic decision and the government should make up for the losses of small and medium-sized businesses.
This opinion was expressed by the fifth president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in the program “Freedom of expression” on the channel ICTV.
“Today, it’s hard to make absolutely meaningless restrictions. Why was it necessary to limit visits to the parks, the work of public catering establishments, where you could come to place an order … hairdressers , car services, small food stores. Because it was very cheap for the government, “- said Poroshenko.

“The government should compensate small and medium-sized businesses, if closed, for the rent it pays, property tax, the percentage of bank payments on loans,” said Poroshenko.
