He is scheduled to meet with residents of a village in the natural disaster zone.

In addition, the president will chair a meeting on disaster management in the country's western regions.

As was reported, heavy rainfalls on June 22-24 worsened the flood situation in Ivano-Frankivsk, Chernivtsi, Lviv, Zakarpattia, and Ternopil regions. Some 285 villages and towns have suffered from flooding in four western regions alone.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Zelensky was put in two-week quarantine because his wife, Olena Zelenska, had tested positive for the coronavirus. His self-isolation period is officially expiring on Friday, June 26.
