POROSHENKO FAILS TO START NEW CONFLICT IN EASTERN EUROPE, DECLARES END OF MARTIAL LAW
26 December, 2018
On December 26, Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko announced the end of a martial law, which was introduced in November after a clash between a Ukrainian naval ground and Russian coastal guards in the Black Sea, south of the Kerch Strait.
“Today, right now, at 2:00pm [local time], the martial law ends,” he said. “I would like to highlight that the Russian threat has not gone away.”
