KIEV, June 8. /TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has signed a law on legal regime of martial law, the Verkhovna Rada said on its official website on Monday.
"Martial law is a special legal regime that is introduced in Ukraine or on its separate territories in case of armed aggression or a threat of attack, threat for Ukraine’s independence or territorial integrity," the document said. Martial law can be imposed after the Verkovna Rada adopts the corresponding presidential decree.
"Means of legal regime of martial law include, in particular… forced settlement of citizens of a foreign country that threatens to attack or conduct aggression against Ukraine," the explanatory note to the document said.
According to the law, introduction of martial law entails labor duty for the population of the working age; allows expropriation of property, prohibits meetings and gatherings, activities of certain political parties; introduces media regulation, curfew; limits the freedom of movement for citizens and so on.
On January 27, the Ukrainian parliament adopted a resolution declaring Russia as an aggressor state.
Earlier, Poroshenko said that martial law in Ukraine may be introduced for several hours if necessary. "Now, legislature allows to do it. For people, it is a considerable limitation of their civil rights - censure is introduced, along with curfew and property expropriation. I would like to note that for today, despite the war, I remain the supporter of maintaining the key rights," he said.
