According to Stepanov, the ministry feels for the entrepreneurs seeking to reopen their establishments, but the epidemiological situation in Ukraine does not allow this just yet, he adds.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Cabinet allowed cafes and restaurants to seat up to four patrons per table, while the previous rule allowed two persons max. At the same time, open-air seatings are subject to 1.5 m social distancing rules.
