The Cabinet of Ministers may not decide to reduce quarantine because of the mass Easter services in the laurels of Pochaev and Svyatogorsk of the UOC-MP.
This was announced on Gromadsky by Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers Oleg Nemchinov, answering the question of whether it is possible that due to Easter services with a large number of people in the laurels of Pochaev and Svyatogorsk of the UOC-MP, the quarantine is not attenuated.
“I think it’s entirely possible, you have to look at a number of factors. If you look at the statistics of the national police, the number of churchgoers has exceeded expectations. It was much less than in the usual period, but at the same time it was pretty risky numbers, especially how you mentioned Pochaev and the Donetsk region, where there were really such precedents, “said Nemchinov.
He added that there were negative moments in Kiev, in particular, he recalled the situation in Pechersk’s laure of Kiev, which is already in quarantine and where new cases of infection continue to be recorded.
