Parubiy: Parliament in conditions of martial law to work as usual

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine during the period of martial law, introduced in ten regions of the country, will work as usual.

Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy stated this at a briefing, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The Verkhovna Rada works as usual. Of course, security and defense will be the key issues during this and next weeks because martial law means preventive measures for maximum mobilization and for readiness in the event of a full-scale attack by the Russian Federation," said Parubiy.

At the same time, the speaker stressed that the state leadership is doing everything possible to ensure that martial law in no way restricts the rights and freedoms of citizens, as it only concerns mobilization, coordination and preparation of the security sector in the event of more aggressive actions by the aggressor country.

As reported, on November 25, Russian border ships committed the acts of aggression against three Ukrainian ships heading from the port of Odesa to the port of Mariupol. The Russian special forces fired and seized three Ukrainian ships in the Kerch Strait. There were 24 sailors aboard.

On November 26, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the law approving the presidential decree on the introduction of martial law in ten regions for 30 days in connection with the Russian aggression.
