KIEV, January 14. /TASS/. Deputies allied to Ukraine's prime minister are demanding that the conflict-hit eastern region's shaky ceasefire is replaced with martial law.
The move has been made by colleagues of premier Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s People's Front faction in the Verkhovna Rada lower house of parliament.
“We are initiating an appeal to the country’s president, Petro Poroshenko, to revoke the ceasefire regime,” lawmaker Roman Zastavniy told reporters on Wednesday.
“These issues will be discussed at a plenary session of the Verkhovna Rada today,” he added.
Parties to the Ukrainian conflict agreed on a ceasefire at talks mediated by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in the Belarusian capital, Minsk, on September 5, two days after Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed his plan to settle conflict in Ukraine's turbulent east.
Numerous violations of the truce, which took effect on the same day, have been reported.
