Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal says that his government sees no reason to impose a new lockdown in the country.

"We really do not want and do not see any reason for total quarantine," he said when visiting a polling station in Lviv on October 25, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

"We are currently managing adaptive quarantine. You see that now, unfortunately, there are more and more red zones. Once again – I urge people to realize that face masks, social distancing and responsibility are what will save our economy and our people from the spread of this epidemic. Our preparedness today is many times better than in spring," he said.
