He appealed to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and representatives of the whole law enforcement system to take the situation in every region "under special control", "Introduce street patrols so that every person could ask an employee in a form for assistance. In order to make citizens’ public order and safety the main priorities."

"This is the personal responsibility of each head of law enforcement structure in every region. It's the personal responsibility of the Ministry of Interior, Security Service, National Guard. I appeal to our law enforcement system to take all measures to strengthen security in cities, villages, districts, to deal with any manifestation of terrorism and terrorist organizations, to prevent the escalation of the situation, provocations and to protect the Ukrainian citizens," Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed.
