KIEV, January 21. /ITAR-TASS/. If imposing a state of emergency is necessary the parliamentary faction of the Party of Regions will vote "yes" and do it promptly, Mikhail Chechetov, one of the leaders of the ruling Party of Regions and member of the Ukrainian Rada, told journalists on Tuesday.
"If the decision is well balanced, and a state of emergency is necessary to meet the national interests of Ukraine, ensure security of its citizens we will adopt this decision," Chechetov said. "It is law enforcement bodies, who should, above all, put forward this initiative. No one has suggested it so far, but if it is voiced the decision will be made promptly," the MP said.
Earlier, a faction of the ruling Party of Regions in Lugansk had appealed to Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich, asking him to take tough measures to ensure law and order, including by declaring a state of emergency in Kiev, the press service of the Lugansk regional council of the ruling party said on Tuesday.
"We appeal to the president of Ukraine as a guarantor of the Constitution, asking to take tough measures to ensure order and reinstate the law, including by declaring a state of emergency in Kiev," the appeal said.
