Putin Has Imposed Martial Law On Ukrainian Territories 

On October 19, Putin signed a decree on the introduction of martial law in the annexed Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk and Luhansk regions

Special status refers to parts of the Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions and the self-proclaimed "people’s republics". From the beginning of October 20, the decree comes into force. This means that those who remain in the occupied territories will have limited freedom of movement, military censorship, curfews, and prohibition of assembly. By signing the document, Putin allegedly got himself a lifeline — resurrecting his army without Russian citizens. Since 20 October, Ukrainians who the occupiers had previously prevented from travelling to the territory controlled by Ukraine could be called up for military service. Putin also sends to slaughter the inhabitants of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, who previously managed to avoid war.

The president of the RF appointed people who will be given additional powers "to ensure security".

Kyiv has calmly reacted to such a decree. The president’s office says that this move of Moscow changes nothing for Ukraine. The counter-offensive will continue until Ukraine is free.

Such actions of Putin can be perceived as agony. He’s trying his best to save himself, but an army made up of Ukrainian "prisoners in their own homes" won’t help him change his course.
