"Moreover, the Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers, during one of the TV broadcasts, recognized the legality of the decision of the session of the city council. According to this decisions... public transport continues to operate on special flights, the city fully provides the opportunity for children to study in schools and go to kindergartens, entrepreneurs work on the territory of the city in compliance with anti-epidemic requirements..." said the Mayor.

"According to the recent decision of the Constitutional Court, the Cabinet of Ministers does not have the right to establish a quarantine that restricts the constitutional rights and freedoms of a person and citizen. I ask the residents of Ternopil to unswervingly observe security measures. In particular, wearing a mask indoors, using antiseptics, and maintaining social distance," the Mayor added.
