MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. Deputies of the people’s council of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) have unanimously adopted martial law Friday.
Military law is temporarily introduced on the territory of the republic or in separate areas in case of aggression against LPR or direct threat of aggression. "Aggression against LPR is defined as using military forces by a foreign country, or a group of countries, against the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of LPR or in any way incompatible with the UN Charter," the law stipulates.
Martial law can be introduced or cancelled by a decree issued by an LPR head.
"While military law is in force, rights and freedoms of civilians may be limited, along with activities of enterprises, institutions, organizations, rights of officials, to an extent deemed necessary for ensuring the country’s defense capabilities and security," Lugansk Inform Center cited the law.
