KIEV, February 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Armed Forces have not addressed President Viktor Yanukovich to impose a state of emergency due to mass protest actions in the country, acting Defence Minister Pavel Lebedev told Itar-Tass.
“The Armed Forces support the head of state’s statement on the peaceful settlement of the conflict,” the acting minister said.
“Servicemen have voiced their attitude towards the events on Grushevsky Street: such extremism will lead to confrontation and civil war,” Lebedev said.
The acting minister said about 87% of servicemen favoured the peaceful settlement of the conflict.
