On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine. President Volodymyr Zelensky has declared martial law in the country and announced mobilization. Since then, martial law has been repeatedly extended, most recently — at the end of May. Then it was extended immediately for three months— until August 23.
During martial law, the Ukrainian authorities may declare a curfew; establish a special mode of entry and exit; restrict the freedom of movement of citizens, foreigners and stateless persons, as well as the movement of vehicles. In addition, the country may ban the activities of certain political parties or resort to other measures.
In mid-August, Zelensky submitted a bill to the Verkhovna Rada to extend martial law in the country.
Since the beginning of hostilities, air raid alerts have been regularly announced in Kyiv. The Russian military left the Kyiv and Chernihiv regions in March amid negotiations between delegations in Istanbul.
