In the Odessa region a military state has been stopped

In Ukraine, the military situation, which has been introduced in certain areas, has been discontinued. During the month a number of organizational and mobilization measures were implemented that increased the combat capability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the ability to respond to the threat of a full-scale invasion. This became known during the session of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.

"The introduction of martial law was timely and necessary. As last month showed - and an effective step. His suspension is my principal decision. It is based on an analysis of all components of the current security situation in the state. We are talking not only about the protection of territorial integrity, not only about the defense of every single piece of Ukrainian land, we are talking about the security of people, "said President Poroshenko.

The head of state also recalled that the reason for the introduction of a special legal regime was the act of aggression against Ukrainian seamen and vessels in the Kerch Strait, committed by Russian military.

During the period of the martial law in the Odessa region, there were no significant restrictions on the rights and freedoms of citizens. And, as the chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov has repeatedly emphasized, he was the least visible and did not affect the everyday life of the inhabitants.

Recall that the military state was introduced exclusively in the regions along the Russian border, the Transnistrian section of the Ukrainian-Moldavian border and the coast of the Azov and Black Seas. It was about strengthening security and measures that would allow Ukraine to react and mobilize all resources as soon as possible.
