Ukrainian President Fined For Hanging Out With Friends At A Cafe During Lockdown.
The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky says he has been fined for violating lockdown rules in his country.
He explained that the incident occurred after he visited a cafe in the central city of Khmelnytsky on June 3rd.
A photo of Zelensky sipping coffee in the cafe was released by his office – although a ban on catering services indoors was still in effect at the time. The president was also without a face mask.
“They did the right thing,” the president said, referring to the fine – but without revealing how much he had to pay.
The President also said he had even considered at one point getting deliberately infected with Covid-19 to show Ukrainians that the danger was real.
