Denys Shmyhal underlined that from April 19, individual entrepreneurs and employees from the "red" quarantine zones can register for a UAH 8,000 state assistance.
"The Ministry of Social Policy and the Ministry of Digital Transformation have shortly shaped all necessary infrastructure instruments for payments for those whose business activities have been affected as a result of increased quarantine restrictions.

Apart from that, the Prime Minister in the course of the Government meeting drew again the attention to the importance of complying with anti-epidemic rules and noted that several regions have already left the "red" quarantine zones.
"This demonstrates that the adaptive quarantine model yields result. As we have emphasized: there is no point in imposing a strict lockdown in the whole country now. Responsible actions of local authorities, which promptly and understandingly responded to outbreaks on the ground, are effective," the Prime Minister underlined.
