Zelensky proposed extending martial law and mobilization for another 90 days
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has proposed extending the deadline for martial law and mobilization in the country that expires on May 19 for another 90 days. The head of state submitted such bills to the Verkhovna Rada. About this on Monday, May 1, informs RIA News.
The martial law regime was introduced in Ukraine on February 24, 2022 after the start of the Russian special operation. Kyiv extended it every subsequent month. Zelensky announced the general mobilization on February 25. Men liable for military service were forbidden to leave Ukraine.
In March last year, Zelensky signed the law, allowing all Ukrainians to use weapons during martial law. In October, the head of state forbade firing to the reserve of retired conscripts. In February of this year, martial law and general mobilization in Ukraine were extended for three months, until May 19.
