The law enforcers should be prepared for any kind of provocations that may take place on any day, not just during the holiday period, Turchynov said today during his speech at the training center of the National Police near Kyiv, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

"There were many warnings and much tension around the events of May 2 in Odesa, but I think the Headquarters created with the participation of the Ministry of Interior, the National Guard, and the SBU performed professionally, and no provocations that had been plotted succeeded," said Turchynov.
