It should be stressed that the department refers to the letter of Valentyna Danyshevska, the Supreme Court Chairman, to Victor Muzhenko, the Head of the Armed Forces of Ukraine HQ, which has an answer to the question concerning the duration of the special period in Ukraine.
“The Supreme Court has explicitly expressed its legal position concerning the definition of the concept “special period” in the regulation as of April 25, 2018. The regulation says that the period lasted in Ukraine since March 17, 2014, after the decree of Ukraine’s President as of March 17, 2014, on partial mobilization was published,” the letter says.
Besides, it was stressed that the Supreme Court upholds the legal position according to which the special period in Ukraine is underway.
Earlier, mass media informed that the court canceled the decision on a special period in Ukraine.
Reportedly, the law on Ukraine’s defence says that the special period starts from the moment of announcement of the decision on mobilization (except directed) or bringing it to the executors on a hidden mobilization or from the moment of imposing the martial law in Ukraine or in its separated parts and embraces the time of mobilization, military time and partially the restoration period after the military actions are over. Such definition is enshrined in the law on mobilization preparation and mobilization.
