President of Ukraine imposed martial law


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky declared martial law on Thursday, saying Russia has targeted Ukraine’s military infrastructure. He appealed to the people of Ukraine to stay at home and not panic.

In a brief video address posted on Facebook, Mr Zelensky said Russia has announced a special military operation in the Donbas region and is carrying out attacks on its military infrastructure and border guards.

“This morning, Russia launched a new military operation against our state,” Mr Zelensky said in a separate message posted on the president’s website.

“This is a completely baseless, cynical invasion,” he said.

“We, the citizens of Ukraine, have been determining our own future since 1991,” he said in reference to the year of the collapse of the Soviet Union.

“But now, what is being decided is not only the future of our country, but it is also the future of how Europe will be.”

Earlier, the country had imposed a nationwide emergency for 30 days. The introduction of a state of emergency empowers the authorities, who can choose which one to enforce. These could include restrictions on transportation, additional security for critical infrastructure, and strikes. The state of emergency applies to the whole of Ukraine except the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, where it has been in force since 2014.

Martial law would impose strict restrictions, which may include restrictions on meetings, movements and political parties.
