Head of ‘Inforesist’ group Dmytro Tymchuck commented on declaration of martial law in Ukraine on the official group site.
Speaking about the introducing of martial law in Donetsk and Lugansk regions he mentioned that “Inforesist’ group have been supporting this decision since the very beginning of the conflict.
The main argument, according to Tymchuck, lies in the fact that the restriction of powers of local authorities and their transfer to military commanders would prevent close cooperation of these government with terrorists. The situation that, to our great regret, was to be observed everywhere in Donetsk.
Yesterday the representatives of ‘Inforesist’ had a talk with the representatives of General Prosecutor office. The latter is being extremely undesirable to introduce martial law. The key argument is lack of grounds. Because Ukraine is not in the state of war officially, consequently there’s no need for martial law n. ‘One should agree, it sounds logical’, – Tymchuck mentions.
According to him there are some organizational problems that appear when the state of martial law is introduced. In particular it is not clear in what way the representative of Defense Ministry would organize the life of settlements and regions: from the solving of municipal issues to distribution of local budgets. Militants have neither experience nor experts on this issues.
Tymchuck supposes that there should be some interaction schemes and division of powers between military commanders and local authorities under their supervision. ‘But these are questions to legislators that should clearly define such issues in legal documents in future’, – Tymchuck says.
