How do locals follow the restrictions in Ukraine?

     Telling about restrictions in Ukraine, be ready to wear a mask in public places. More often people wear the masks outdoors even when it is not required to be wore. But sometimes there are some skeptics, who consider COVID-19 to be not real and you can meet such people in the grocery or near the banks or somewhere else. Security man in some groceries can ask to wear the mask or can not. If you consider it inappropriate to refuse following the rules, my personal advice will be not to interact and wait until authorized persons dot their job.

People, who don’t wear the mask can be aggressive because of the situation. Take care and be safe.

Wearing the masks outdoors is not strictly required, people take their own decisions either to wear the masks or not.
