"Our paratroopers and military units are now moving to the Russian border to strengthen our defensive capabilities. This became possible owing to martial law," Poroshenko said.
He noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin hoped the introduction of martial law in Ukraine would postpone presidential elections.
"But only one person, Putin, will take advantage of this. We will not give him such a chance," Poroshenko said.
The head of state stressed that the introduction of martial law in Ukraine would not violate any civil rights, including electoral rights. Poroshenko recalled that presidential elections would take place in Ukraine on March 31. He also said that he as president would do everything he can to protect the rights of Ukrainians.
