Quote: "Residents of the Lviv region! An important message!

According to new intelligence data, as well as information about possible activity by sabotage groups in the region, a decision was made to reimpose the curfew on Easter night, from 23:00 on 23 April to 05:00 on 24 April.

The curfew will last from 23:00 to 05:00 every day.

The church leadership of the region has agreed with this decision. Night services are postponed until the morning hours in all churches in the Lviv region.

Unfortunately, the invaders don’t have such a thing as a great religious holiday. They are so violent that they do not understand what Easter is. Therefore, these days, there is a great threat of provocations. "

Details: The Head of the Lviv Regional Military Administration also asked the residents of the region: if they see suspicious flying objects, they should report them via a chatbot on the Telegram channel "Shows letyt" ["Something is flying"] - @rusrocketfly_bot.

If residents notice other suspicious objects or people, they are asked to call the police on 102.

It is better to celebrate the resurrection of God at present in a small family circle. It is better to visit  [each other and guests] after the victory, said Kozytskyi.

Background: The Lviv city authorities reported that there will be no night services on the night of 23/24 April. All services will end before 23:00 on 23 April and begin after 6:00 on 24 April.
