Kyiv Police Make Arrests Following Tougher Quarantine Measures
There were some tense moments in the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, when police blocked access to a popular sports and recreation ground. It came after Ukraine's government intensified lockdown measures on April 6 to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Police officers blocked the bridge to Kyiv's Hydropark, a popular island sports ground located in the Dnipro River. Angry citizens confronted police and argued that the new restrictions violated their freedom of movement. Two people were arrested.
