KIEV, February 24 (Itar-Tass) - The speaker of Ukraine’s parliament, Verkhovna Rada, Aleksandr Turchinov, has promised the Ukrainians that number one task of the country’s new government will be to restore control of the country, law and order and to guarantee peace and calm.

“Our top priority today is to put an end to the standoff, restore control of the country and law and order, send all special forces and interior troops to the barracks, guarantee peace and calm and prevent new casualties, local clashes and outbreaks of mob law,” he said.

“It is our duty to rebuff any manifestations of separatism and encroachments on the territorial integrity of Ukraine,” Turchinov said in a message to the nation.

Turchinov recalled that in order to guarantee law and order the national parliament had appointed an acting interior minister and special commissioners for the operation of the Prosecutor-General’s Office, the Defence Ministry and the Security Service.

“This means that the law enforcement agencies have ceased to be a threat to lives, health and security of Ukrainian citizens,” he said.
