No reason for state of emergency in east Ukraine, counter-terror operation already reached turning point – deputy PM
Ukrainian First Deputy Prime Minister Vitaliy Yarema has said there is no reason to declare a state of emergency in the country's eastern regions.
"There are no reasons today to introduce a state of emergency. The counter-terrorist operation has already reached its turning point," Yarema told reporters after a Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers' meeting on Tuesday.
Militiamen in the southeast of Ukraine "have already realized that making the Ukrainian army angry is tantamount to being one's own enemy. They already had the chance to feel that during yesterday's fighting at the Donetsk airport," he added.
