As we reported earlier, Ukraine's Interior Minister Arsen Avakov stated that there was no need to introduce the state of emergency in Ukraine for the fight against coronavirus.

According to Avakov, the general quarantine and emergency situation are necessary for the stop of Covid-19 spread.

“There is no need in the emergency state. It provides the restriction of constitutional rights. We do not need it for the fight against coronavirus. Its implementation might be only the last resort,” Avakov said.
