Speaking with journalists at the territory of the medical center, Mr. Zelenskyy noticed that Ukraine had never faced the need to evacuate its citizens from other countries because of the epidemic. But all agencies worked seamlessly and managed to cope with the situation.
“Everyone united very quickly – the State Emergency Service, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the regional state administration from our side. There were some issues with other law enforcement agencies, which had to work”, - Mr. Zelenskyy noted.
