Ukrainian presidnet promises not to prolonge martial law

Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko said on Wednesday he had no plans to extend martial law imposed in ten regions of the country after the Kerch Strait incident.

"If Ukraine’s moves and international reaction stop the aggressor now, martial law will end in 30 days. I am not going to extend it," the Ukrainian president said during his trip to Chernigov.

He said, however, that the task had been set "not to waste a single minute in case of an open full-scale ground aggression".

Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, earlier endorsed President Pyotr Poroshenko’s decree on imposing martial law for a period of 30 days from November 28 in the Vinnitsa, Lugansk, Nikolayev, Odessa, Sumy, Kharkov, Chernigov, Donetsk, Zaporozhye and Kherson Regions, as well as in Ukraine’s territorial waters in the Sea of Azov.
