Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk has commissioned to submit to the Government of Ukraine an issue of disciplinary responsibility for persons guilty of failures to fulfil orders of the Government on civil protection of citizens and a strengthened fight against threats of terrorism that may include “dismissal from their positions". He announced during a meeting of the State Emergency Commission on Monday, March 16.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk appealed to the chiefs of regional state administrations, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, “To ensure complete control over the territories. To finalize an inventory of all civil protection facilities. To finance and purchase medical means and drugs".

The PM stressed on the need to ensure 112 emergency system operating all over the regions of Ukraine, which is now successful in Kharkiv and Lviv, "In each region phone number 112 must function as a true emergency response to every question within the competence of relevant services".

"The situation is extremely difficult. Russian terrorists and Russia aren’t going to retreat at this stage. And it demands commitment and discipline from all of us. This requires from the Ministry of Defence and the General headquarters to secure complete combat readiness of the Armed Forces. It requires from the Emergency Service, each regional leader to provide activity to ensure civil protection of citizens. This requires from the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Security Service of Ukraine and the entire law enforcement system to fight against terrorism and prosecute everyone who infringes on the life of Ukrainians and Ukrainian independence," he said.
