President: Martial law will be imposed only in several regions

President Petro Poroshenko emphasizes that martial law will be introduced in several regions only in case of the ground operation of the regular troops of Russia outside the Joint Forces Operation and outside the illegally annexed Crimea.

"Following the results of the discussion, the draft law approving the Decree envisages the introduction of martial law exclusively in the regions located along the Russian border, along the Transnistrian section of the Ukrainian-Moldovan border, along the Sea of Azov and the Black Sea," the Head of State stressed at the Verkhovna Rada session.

"It is exactly where the blow can take place," Petro Poroshenko emphasized.

The Head of State listed these areas: Vinnytsia, Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Sumy, Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Kherson, as well as the internal waters of the Azov-Kerch water area.
