In addition, on September 19 through September 30, the city will ban the sale of alcoholic beverages, pyrotechnics, knives and toys that imitate weapons.

At the same time, pilgrims will be able to move around the city after the curfew begins only when accompanied by the police.

According to her, Hasidim were warned about the danger, after which registration takes place, where they sign a document stating that they are informed about the situation in Ukraine.

"It should be noted that the most religious pilgrims will come, so the celebration will not be the same as in previous years. "this is a prayer," Rybnytska explained.

More than a thousand pilgrims came to Wuchang to celebrate Rosh Hashanah.

Uman has prepared 21 shelters in case of an air alert during the Rosh Hashanah celebration.
