Quarantine is mitigated, but the threat does not disappear. And the government blames Ukrainians for violating quarantine restrictions at a time when even President Volodymyr Zelensky does not follow these rules.
So during the presidential visit to the Khmelnytsky region Zelensky was enjoying a cup of coffee in a cafe (not on the summer playground, but indoors).
Today, it’s been reported that the president and a number of officials were fined for a demonstrative violation of quarantine. “They did the right thing,” the president said later. Nevertheless, this case demonstrates the hypocrisy of Zelensky’s government. People who are supposed to lead the fight against the virus and show Ukrainians by their own example the conscientious observance of quarantine are having fun in a large company against all the rules. They can afford to pay a fine of 17 thousand UAH.
