"The Commission for Emergency Situations has prescribed the rules and conditions under which these facilities may operate. At the same time, the city authorities will monitor the observance of the rules of work by all institutions," the mayor said.

"I emphasize: if the epidemiological situation worsens, Kyiv will return to restrictions. And this is not some boogeyman story. Today everyone must understand that we have to be careful! Comply with the elementary rules: face masks on public transport and in public, sanitizing, and social distancing," Klitschko stressed.
