Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal says his government will not extend the weekend quarantine.

"We may state a positive effect has been achieved. By the end of the weekend quarantine, November 30, we had 6,000 fewer cases over the previous week than was predicted," he said at a government meeting on Wednesday, an UNIAN correspondent reported.

"This allows us to lift these very restrictions. Both on the weekend and during the week, the orange zone curbs will be applicable throughout the country," the prime minister added.
