Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov says he would not want a lockdown in the country for the New Year holidays.

"I really would not want us to have a lockdown for the New Year," he told journalists on Tuesday, an UNIAN correspondent reported.

Danilov noted the situation was rather tough in the cities of Kyiv, Odesa, and Dnipro.

"But there are territories where there is even a decline in the percentage of new cases compared to the previous period," the NSDC secretary said.
