Ukraine imposes state of emergency

(LANKAPUVATH | COLOMBO) –Ukraine’s parliament has voted to approve a national state of emergency in response to the threat of a Russian invasion.

The measure was overwhelmingly approved on the same day that Moscow began to evacuate its Kyiv embassy and Washington stepped up its warnings about the chances of an all-out Russian attack.

In the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, a state of emergency had already been in place since 2014.
