The Minister of Health, Maxim Stepanov, urges his compatriots to stay at Easter for the health and safety of their loved ones.
He said it in a video message posted on Facebook.
“There are a few days left before the celebration of Easter. I understand that for many, it is a long-awaited day. And even during quarantine, it remains unchanged. Therefore, the government ensured easy delivery via Ukrposhta of already blessed Easter cakes. The authorities have agreed to broadcast religious services online and on TV, “said Stepanov.
Of course, said the minister, the government cannot interfere in the affairs of the church, but it can ask people to stay at home even on vacation, and “not because the health ministry recommends or that the doctors ask, but for their own good, for the good of their relatives and friends. “
