If the security situation in Ukraine deteriorates radically, the martial law may be declared in the country, Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said, speaking on ICTV Feb. 7, TCH reports.
Klimlin believes the Russian aggression is more than just a war.
“It is a recognized fact that the Russian aggression is carried out not only by military means but also by the hybrid ones,” Klimkin said.
Poroshenko’s deputy chief of staff Kostyantyn Yeliseev said earlier that the declaration of the martial law in Ukraine is off the present agenda. Yet, if need be, the decision will be taken by the National Security and Defense Council, he said.
