President Petro Poroshenko said this at a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
“I think that Arsen Borysovych [Avakov] will confirm that the number of crimes reduced by 26% in 10 regions, where martial law was in force over a month. Safety and security are better observed in the streets of regional centers and in Kyiv,” the head of state said.
At the same time, he noted that during the period of martial law, more unregistered weapons had been revealed.
In addition, Poroshenko recalled that over the past month the border guards had not allowed more than a thousand foreigners who could not justify the purpose of their trip enter Ukraine.
As reported, President Petro Poroshenko on Wednesday at 14:00 announced the termination of the legal regime of martial law in 10 regions of Ukraine.
On November 26, the Verkhovna Rada adopted the law approving a presidential decree on the introduction of martial law in certain regions of Ukraine, namely in Odesa, Mykolaiv, Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Luhansk, Donetsk, Sumy, Kharkiv, Chernihiv, and Vinnytsia regions. These regions are located along Ukraine's border with Russia, Moldova, as well as the coast of the Black and Azov Seas.
Martial law was introduced from 14:00 on November 26, 2018 for a period of 30 days – until 14:00 on December 26, 2018
Martial law was introduced in response to Russia's aggression in the Kerch Strait.
On November 25, Russian border ships committed aggressive actions against Ukrainian vessels that set sail from the port of Odesa to the port of Mariupol. Russian special forces fired on and captured three Ukrainian vessels and 24 sailors in the Kerch Strait.
