“I come from the fact that the President, like all civil servants, has faithfully fulfilled his duties. Despite the fact that many experts quite thoroughly associate yesterday’s events with the conduct of the election campaign, I nevertheless wanted to concentrate not on elections, but, first of all, on defensive capabilities. The election factor is present, but if it is necessary for mobilization and security of the country, then such a decision must takes place “, – said Yuri Miroshnychenko.
The parliamentarian stressed that in such a difficult time everyone should unite and approach the situation without panic. And the priority is to reassure and guarantee the security of citizens: “The adoption of such a decision is not directly related to military action. The military state relates not to the military but to the so-called rear civilians. All that relates to conducting real military operations – does not require any martial law. The armed forces in the usual regime have the absolute right to withstand the attack on our country. “
