Kyiv: Political expert Anna Malkina commented on the “mysterious” 12 paragraph in the text of the presidential decree “On the introduction of martial law”, calling it the one that belongs to state secrets. She told this to Front News International .
“The first thing to say is that the information is not fully public, there are issues that fall under the category of state secrets. Actually, this is regulated by the relevant laws, and this information refers to the one that cannot be made public so that these laws are not violated. Therefore, the answer to the question “which is the 12th point” is in a state secret box, ”she stated.
Anna Malkina also said that the decision to impose martial law is based largely on information about military buildup on the Ukrainian-Russian border.
“I think that the decision to impose martial law in certain territories of Ukraine was implemented not only as an electoral technology, as many have assumed, when this information only appeared. This decision is based on operational information, on intelligence data on possible plans of the Russian Federation, therefore this 12 point may contain actions that will be taken in case of a land or other military operation by the Russian Federation. All this is logical and clear that to bring these decisions to the public space means to directly inform the leadership of the Russian Federation about the intentions of Ukraine, ”Malkina added.
Recall that the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine approved the Decree of the President of Ukraine “On the introduction of martial law in Ukraine” for a period of 30 days. The decision was made on Monday, November 26, during an extraordinary meeting of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. On the corresponding decision, 276 Deputies of the Ukrainian parliament (Verkhovna Rada) voted.
