President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky says possible introduction of a state of emergency across Ukraine will not be exploited to "pass some unpopular decisions."

It will be aimed at preserving life and health of Ukrainians, the president said in a video address to the nation posted on Facebook of the President’s Office.

"I'd like to turn to some of our politicians: in difficult times for our country, engaging in political hype is actually equal to looting. You say that the government will introduce a state of emergency in order to smuggle through some unpopular decisions along the way. I can only say one thing: don't judge others by yourself, by your experience, and your life principles – if I can name them this way," the president said.
