The National Security and Defense Council and the Foreign Ministry have stated that Russia is bent on disrupting the election process, or to completely de-legitimize it. Throughout its post-Soviet history, Ukraine has had no practical experience in dealing with such a high level of security and foreign invasion threats.

Gentle reminders from U.S. and European partners on the need to elect a new president and receive much needed technical and financial assistance attached to this event put an end to discussions on declaring a state of emergency.
Chances to quell the terrorist actions by enacting any kind of heightened state is doubtful, but the organization of the electoral process would be jeopardized.
