On Friday, January 27, the Cabinet of Ministers banned the departure of officials abroad during the war. In particular, without good reasons.
Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal reported this in Telegram.
"In compliance with the decision of the National Security Council, the Government approved a resolution prohibiting officials from going abroad during the war without valid reasons," he wrote.
It is noted that people's deputies, officials, representatives of local authorities, prosecutors, judges and other officials can cross the state border on the basis of official business.
"It is possible to go abroad for negotiations, for treatment, to care for minor children. It is not possible to go on a vacation. Unfortunately, there are those who did not understand these basic things even during the war. That is why there was a decision of the National Security Council, there was a corresponding presidential decree of Ukraine and now there is a corresponding resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers," the Prime Minister emphasized.
It will be recalled that on January 23, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed a decree, according to which restrictions on the departure of Ukrainian officials abroad are introduced.
Yesterday, the Embassy of Ukraine in Thailand announced a meeting with People's Deputy Mykola Tyschenko at the Bangkok Novotel Hotel, which is scheduled for January 27, supposedly to "discuss issues of improving interaction with representatives of the Ukrainian community in the Kingdom of Thailand."
