Ukraine will use all the opportunities of the martial law to strengthen the army’s defence capacity. President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said at the meeting dedicated to the security issues, 112 Ukraine reports.
“We will use all the opportunities the martial law provides to strengthen the capabilities of Ukraine’s Armed Forces to counter Russian aggression. I set a separate task to inform the international community about Russia’s aggressive actions and Ukraine’s position concerning these actions. This multi-billion machine of propaganda Russia turned on to try to assign responsibility to Ukraine,” the President said.
He also noted that he was satisfied with the position of West on the current situation.
“The whole world is with us now. We are so grateful to the international community and the leaders of the world powers for a clear and consistent support of Ukraine, clear requirement concerning Russia on immediate release of the Ukrainian POWs and Ukrainian military vessels, for demanding Russia to de-escalate the situation in Azov and Black seas, in Kerch Strait,” Poroshenko stressed.
As we reported earlier, the coast guard ships of the Russian Navy acted aggressively against the ships of the Ukrainian Navy, which have been carrying out a scheduled transition from Odesa port to Mariupol port in the Sea of Azov.
Given the tough situation in the area of Kerch Strait in the Sea of Azov, President Petro Poroshenko supported the offer of Ukraine's national security and defense council; it stipulates that the Ukrainian Parliament should consider the option to impose the martial law in Ukraine.
On November 28, the Uriadovy Kurier, the official outlet of the Ukrainian Cabinet, published the presidential decree No.392, which activates the decision of the National Security and Defense Council in Ukraine about the 30-days-long martial law in Ukraine.
