The media service of the DNR MVD reported that 184 Orthodox churches all over the DNR would serve festive services to celebrate Easter, which is on 16 April this year. It noted:

184 houses of worship in the territory of the Republic will serve celebrations to commemorate the Resurrection of Christ.

According to the MVD, before holiday services, they’ll search all churches and surrounding areas for dangerous objects. Police patrols and MChS first responders will be on duty near each church to prevent emergencies and violations of public order. In total, the action will involve about 700 police, including traffic inspectors. The MVD also reminded people that there’s no curfew on Easter evening. However, it reminded people to keep proper public order and promptly report all incidents using the emergency number “102”. In 2017, Orthodox Easter is on 16 April. According to a decision taken by DNR Head of State A V Zakharchenko, there’ll be no curfew on Easter evening to allow people to attend festive church services without problems.
