The presidential office has said that a survey has found out that only 3% of Ukrainians plan to attend Easter church services.

Following a daily meeting on coronavirus chaired by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the office said that most Ukrainians (70%) supported quarantine restrictions and do not plan to go to church.

"This is remarkable that Ukrainians are so responsible and the majority of citizens understands high risks from the epidemic. After all, a peak is still ahead. Therefore we should do our best to make sure that the 3% of believers are not exposed to danger," the president said.

To help people celebrate Easter, the Ukrainian postal service Ukrposhta accepts orders for the free delivery of blessed Easter cakes.
