The Security Council meeting began at 00:05, Tuesday, immediately after the President began the Military Cabinet. Announcing the agenda for the National Security and Defense Council, Alexander Turchinov's secretary outlined the main points in two phrases: first, the conflicts in the Azov Sea are a "military aggression". Secondly, the NSDC will consider the possibility of martial law.
A presidential decree appeared on the introduction of martial law yesterday in the afternoon on the head of state's website. The document deals with the presentation of 09:00 on Wednesday, November 28, for 30 days of martial law – "special legal system" which creates conditions for the "reinstatement of armed and ensure national security, eliminating threats to independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. " The Ministry of Foreign Affairs was instructed to appeal to the guarantor's countries within the framework of the Budapest Memorandum to begin the meeting of UN Security Council meetings, OSCE Council, to arrange consultations between the President and the Foreign Minister with "associated states" leaders. It is worth noting that these instructions are carried out long before publishing the text – the "Norman Four" that was collected yesterday in Berlin to discuss the situation. Statements were condemned by Russian Federation operations by Canada, the Czech Republic, and Finland. And he followed the response of the centers of influence of the world immediately after the NSDC meeting. The EU, represented by the head of diplomacy of Federica Mogherini, urged everyone to act as "as barrier as possible" (followed by the Russian Federation by a maximum for the need to restore a ruling freedom through the River Kerch), as well as NATO (announced the Speaker of Oana Lungesku's support for the honesty of Ukraine, calling on the parties to collapse).

Fight law – Lite version. Why not panic, leave the cordon and catch up on buckwheat
Initially, at a meeting of the Security Council night, the president announced the introduction of martial law for 60 days. The term is determined – first of all, it changes the date of the elections (during a special legal position, to declare a campaign, to exclude any action for its behavior). "The law specifically states that conducting elections is impossible during the EaP – this is a direct and firm norm. The parliament will appoint elections only after the end of its operation, respectively, after 100 days, and a vote is taken, "said the deputy of the people of BPP Alexey Goncharenko to us. The deputy also explained: the fact that the EAP is not submitted on a date before the elections in any way is related to deferral of the real will. The same thesis was repeated in different variations by all the speakers close to the BPP and the president. "But if the president had initially introduced a short term in the edict, he would not have fallen to the start of the election campaign," former Minister of Justice Alexander Lavrinovich said "Vesti". – And since the elections would have changed at least 25 days, and, according to the PA baseline scenario, the RADA would meet in January. If the president had not extended the martial law, this would have postponed the election campaign (announcement of the start of the campaign, nominating candidates, etc.) for a month – until May. "
Political forces such as the Oppoblok (including the "cyssek" and Yuriy Boyko), the "Batkivschyna", and Euro optimist deputies – protests about the norms on restricting citizens' rights and freedoms. Text was sent to different deputies to what was posted on the president's website. "Just six months ago, Yulia Tymoshenko warned that such authorities could get worse to disrupt the elections," said Andrei Pavlovsky, a member of the "Batkivschyna" political council, to "Vesti" . – There is no coincidence that the president secretly meets Viktor Medvedchuk. I am sure: in a few days the secret will be revealed. Meanwhile, such a technological shift appears to be following unsuccessful attempts by the president to raise his score. "And Anatoliy Gritsenko said at all: the text of the presidential decree includes only those measures that can be provided without the introduction of the EAP." There are no restrictions on the relative of the assailant either in the fields diplomatic or commercial. Again, "it ended.
How to limit rights
The Parliamentary Committee on National Security and Defense (its head of "frontier soldier" Sergei Pashinsky) has approved the decree, deciding that "some constitutional rights" may be limited. There is also an explanation in the document, here are 12 articles of the Constitution, in particular, on the disadvantage of housing, on confidential communication, on the protection of personal information, on freedom of movement and declarations, on participation in elections and peaceful services, on the right to property private, on the prevention of forced labor. , on the right to strike and education. "When a year ago changes were made to the law" On legal status of the legal law of the law, "the text was rewritten, expanding the powers of security officers, prosecutors, researchers. Then human rights campaigners called all of these" potential threats "to rights and freedom of citizens: for example, security forces will be able to go to the building without a court order, "reminded the human rights campaigner, Mikhail Chaplyga," Vesti ". One of the "political rights" – to speech freedom – may also be under pressure. "There is no clear wording and standards for media activities and journalists: regulatory documents cover regulation, up to and including termination of media activities, television and radio organizations. powers of military administrations, "said Sergey Tomilenko, head of the National Council of National Journalists of Ukraine, to Vesti. "But it is also possible to use norms and for political reasons, to relax on critical media rights and journalists who are issuing investigations." However, at the Security Council meeting, the head of Information Administration Policy, Yurii Stets, promised that they would not restrict the rights of journalists (recommending the use of information from official sources). "But there are no norms that would regulate the work of the media during the war. And in any case, journalists' activities will receive new merits," said Tomilenko.

What has changed
In the evening, before the parliamentary ballot, the president came out of the deadline suddenly and decided to revise the decree, presenting the IDP for only 30 days, from 09:00 on November 28. In addition, he said that the timing of the elections will not change. "Firstly, the co-sponsors of West Ukraine objected to the deferral of the election date. The president consulted with ambassadors (Poroshenko himself stated that he was speaking to NATO General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg and Polish President Andrzej Duda. – Auth.) , And opposed to extending the presidency, political analyst Alexei Yakubin explained. "Secondly, the president began to be accused of acceding the gentile deed of Yulia Tymoshenko, Yuriy Boyko, Oleg Lyashko …"
The name of the RPL leader in the list is specially disclosed: he / she asks him to authorize / hold elections during a particular period (and require a meeting of the coach leaders with the president before and the Rada voting). According to the Vesti interlocutors, this is a bell: the Ukrainian oligarchs, including those near the president (Lyashko are considered close to Rinat Akhmetov), also disagree with the risks of submitting an ID. After lunch, three former presidents – Kravchuk, Kuchma and Yushchenko – made a joint statement that the Acting Government should have published much earlier (after the Ilovaisky and Debaltsevsky boilers). "Obviously, other arguments have appeared today, most likely of a political nature – elections," the presidents suggested in a statement.
