Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has warned that, if peace is not brought about in Ukraine, nationwide martial law will be introduced.

«I warned at a meeting of the Ukrainian Cabinet of ministers even before Minsk that, if there is no peace, we would have to make a very hard but necessary decision on imposing martial law. I stress once again: in this case martial law will be imposed not only on Donetsk and Luhansk but also on the entire country,» Poroshenko said at a ceremony of delivering equipment to Ukrainian border guards in Kyiv on Saturday.

The president said that having analyzed the legislation on martial law, he will introduce to the Verkhovna Rada the amendments to the legislation that will allow more efficient defense of the state, in case that the peace is not established.

«First of all, we will rely on ourselves and will coordinate our actions with our partners and friends,» he said.
