According to AFP, Ukraine declared martial law on Thursday after Russia revealed a plan to “demilitarise” the country. According to the news agency, explosions were heard in Kyiv and the eastern port city of Maruipol, while air raid sirens were heard in Kyiv’s central district.

The news: According to a news agency, Ukraine declared a “state of emergency” on Wednesday in order to defend its economy and maintain political stability, citing a top Ukrainian security official. The state of emergency has been declared for a duration of 30 days, with the possibility of an extension.

  • Ukraine has declared martial law for the second time in the previous few years. Ukraine barred all Russian men aged 16 to 60 from entering the country in 2018, following the introduction of martial law. It was described by Kyiv as a security precaution to prevent Russia from creating “private” army forces.
  • Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky announced martial law in a televised address. The nature of the restrictions is yet to be determined. However, the imposition is projected to result in tighter restrictions on political party meetings and travels.
  • Martial law is the temporary imposition of direct military control of normal civil functions.
  • After Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a military incursion in Ukraine, martial law was declared. Putin also warned other countries not to interfere with Russian actions, stating that doing so would result in “consequences you have never seen.”
  • The military intervention, according to Putin, was judged necessary to defend people in eastern Ukraine. The US had already stated that this would be Putin’s justification for invading Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the BBC reports that troops from Belarus, a Russian ally, are heading in. Belarusian troops are reportedly joining the Russian offensive, according to Ukrainian sources. While Russian forces are largely assaulting from the east, the country is now being attacked from the north, thanks to troops arriving from Ukraine.
