90 More Days of Martial Law

Ukraine extended martial law and mobilization in connection with the full-scale Russian invasion of the country

The president of Ukraine submitted to the parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, a document extending the military regime in Ukraine. The Verkhovna Rada unanimously supported the president's decision to extend martial law and general mobilization. Therefore, Ukrainians will have to live as many as 90 days in the previously established regime. At the same time, it is worth noting that the residents of Ukraine no longer expect a quick end to the confrontation with the Russian Federation. The government also stresses that the war will be long, so this is probably not the last extension of martial law in the country.

Fedor Venislavsky, a member of the Verkhovna Rada committee on national security, Defense, and Intelligence, said that the continued legal status in Ukraine is necessary for the consolidation of forces.

"90 days, for which the legal regime of martial law is extended, provide for an even greater consolidation of state authorities, people, all components of the security and defence sectors to repel the criminal aggression of the Russian Federation, as well as on adapting the economy to the needs of the armed forces of Ukraine," said the politician.

The draft laws on mobilization and continuation of martial law in Ukraine will end on November 21. Then, Volodymyr Zelenskyy or the parliament may again submit a document on the extension of a particular legal regime related to the Russian occupiers.
