KIEV, May 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine's First Vice-Premier Vitaly Yarema announced at a briefing here on Sunday that Ukrainian security forces would resume an active phase of special operation in the country's eastern regions against federalization supporters within hours.
He said, "The Armed Forces have fully blocked that part of regions" where a people's volunteer corps had been formed.
"In order to bring about conditions for a peaceful solution to the question connected with elections, active operations on the part of the Ukrainian army and law enforcement agencies were suspended on Sunday so that residents of the eastern regions could get to polling stations and cast their votes," the Vice-Premier pointed out.
