KIEV, April 3. /TASS/. Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko has submitted a draft law on legal procedures for introducing a martial law to the Verkhovna Rada, the parliament said on its website on Friday.
The document stipulates rules for introducing and lifting martial law in the country.
"A martial law is a special legal regimen that can be introduced in Ukraine or in parts of its territory in case of a military aggression or a threat of attack, a danger for Ukraine’s state independence and territorial integrity," the draft law says.
A martial law can be introduced after the Verkhovna Rada approves a relevant presidential decree, it said.
Besides, the draft law stipulates that vital facilities of the national economy are to be taken under intensified protection, all able-bodied individuals not engaged in the defense sector are to be bound by a labour duty, property of individuals and communities is to be alienated by force, a curfew is to be introduced, free movements of people are to be restricted and peaceful rallies, gatherings and demonstrations are to be forbidden.
