KIEV, January 21. /TASS/. A Ukrainian lawmaker said on Wednesday Ukraine can impose martial law at any moment, with all documents ready for that, but it is wrong time to do it now.

Sergey Pashinsky, chairman of the national security and defence committee of the Verkhovna Rada (parliament), told the Ukrainian television Channel 5 that martial law documents had been “signed and sealed in envelopes.” “What shall we have in martial law is imposed? From the point of view of mobilization - nothing. Shall we have more tanks if we declare martial law?,” he said, adding that martial law would not be beneficial for Ukraine which needed foreign loans.

“As a country in a state of warfare, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will tell us it was not going to give us any money due to in Charter. But we need financial assistance very much,” he stressed.
