“Security is our first goal. People are afraid of going out and communicating with each other. They fear for the country and their own future,” the head of Ukraine’s interim government said.

“Besides, it is necessary to hold fair and transparent presidential elections because the country needs a new legitimate head of state,” Yatsenyuk stressed.

“We will not shear away from a path leading to the country’s unity, power decentralization, constitutional amendments, the election of a new president and Ukraine’s European integration,” Yatsenyuk said in conclusion.
