Since the onset of COVID-19-related quarantine in Ukraine, more than 50,000 administrative cases have been forwarded to courts where law enforcers asked judges to prosecute those breaking the rules imposed.

The Sudova Vlada Ukrayiny, an online outlet covering the issues of the judiciary, says 3,839 case files were resubmitted, 8,597 were returned by courts, including 8,131 due to improper filing.

At the same time, only nearly 4% of all cases ended up in an actual fine for perpetrators violating quarantine restrictions.
