KIEV, January 24. /TASS/. Leader of the Batkivshchina (Fatherland) faction in the Ukrainian parliament Yulia Timoshenko on Saturday called on the country’s leaders to look at imposing martial law in Donbass.
“My proposal is to invite leaders of the parliamentary factions to take part in a meeting of the National Security and Defence Council convened by the president, to pass a decision on establishing the Supreme High Command Headquarters and to declare martial law in the Lugansk and Donetsk regions,” Timoshenko said in a statement addressed to President Petro Poroshenko, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and parliament speaker Vladimir Groisman.
On Saturday, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko initiated an emergency meeting of the Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council on January 25 over the deterioration of the situation in eastern Ukraine after artillery shelling of the city of Mariupol. To attend this meeting, the Ukrainian president cut short his visit to Saudi Arabia. The meeting is to “work out and take extra steps over the quickly deteriorating situation in eastern regions.”.
