On March 4, Russia set to impose martial law – Ukraine’s NSDC secretary

The Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, Oleksiy Danilov, has confirmed earlier reports that from March 4, the Russian Federation intends to impose martial law across the country.

The statement came as Danilov was speaking on the air of Ukraine 24 TV, answering questions about the possible application for martial law in Russia.

"First, this is the data available to our intelligence that from March 4, the Russian Federation is set to indeed impose martial law in the country. I’d like to see how Moscow and St. Petersburg, where there’s a lot of intellegenzia, will react to this, as they understand what is happening in the Russian Federation. Today, if Putin lacks cannon fodder, he can take children he’s drafting into the army to deploy here, into our meat grinder. I don't understand why he’s doing this," Danilov stressed.

He also noted that many Russians who hold positions in government don’t understand what is going on in Putin's head.

"Bombing our peaceful cities, bombing Kharkiv, bombing historic cities, killing children – what were you even thinking to commit all this?" said Danilov.

He also recalled the statement by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei avrov about the intention to remove nationalists from Ukraine.

"Then I must say that 95% of the citizens of our country must be killed," Danilov said.
