There is no need to introduce emergency state in Ukraine for the fight against coronavirus as Ukrayinska Pravda reported citing Interior Minister Arsen Avakov.

He is sure that the general quarantine and emergency situation are necessary for the stop of the spread of coronavirus infection.

“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.
