The President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, stated that he supports the proposal of the Military Committee regarding the introduction of a martial law because of attack on Ukrainian ships near the Kerch Strait. Poroshenko declared this during a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council.

“I decide to support the proposal of the Military Committee, to bring a corresponding decision to the NSDC meeting and to address it to the Verkhovna Rada,” the head of state said.

Poroshenko stressed that this decision doesn’t mean that Ukraine plans to carry out offensive operations.
