President Vladimir Zelensky reaffirmed arrangements with Ukrainian media groups to broadcast Easter services and stressed that the quarantine period will depend on the discipline of the Ukrainians for the holidays.
He talked about it in a video message.
“Again, I urge you to come home for the Easter holidays. And I am glad that according to opinion polls, almost 90% of Ukrainians are considering doing so. We have agreements with groups of Ukrainian media – you can see the broadcast of services from all churches on Ukrainian TV channels. ” – said Zelensky.
He stressed that the call to stay at home concerns not only the dedication of the Easter basket, but also picnics and camping trips.
The President recalled the situation in the Pechersk Lavra of Kiev, where, according to him, almost 100 cases of coronavirus have already been confirmed on the territory of the monastery, and there are two fatal cases.
The head of state is convinced that this whole situation shows that the coronavirus does not care about nationality, sex or religion, but shows that the disease should not be taken lightly.
