Employees of institutions located in the government district of Kyiv are recommended to stay at home and work remotely on Aug. 22-26, the Ukrainian news website Ukrainska Pravda (UP) reported on Aug 21.

The government district contains the buildings of the Office of the President, the Cabinet of Ministers, the parliament, as well as other government offices.

According to the publication’s sources in the government, it’s been already established that Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, will work remotely. There are exceptions for those officials involved in international delegations and in preparations for upcoming meetings.

Another UP source said that the state employees in the government district are advised to “appear there as little as possible” next week.

Earlier, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that next week, when Ukraine celebrates Independence Day, Russia “might try to do something especially vile and cruel.”

Adviser to the head of the Presidential Office Mykhailo Podolyak said on Aug. 21 that Russia would try to increase the number of missile strikes on Ukrainian cities on Aug. 24.

The police also gave Ukrainians advice on security on Independence Day.
