President Petro Poroshenko noted that the law stipulates that the elections cannot be held during martial law, including the elections in amalgamated hromadas.
"I want to emphasise that I will do everything dependent on me... Since democracy is not violated with the threat of Russian aggression. And there are no military authorities in Ukraine... I will do everything in my power to draft the necessary legislative initiatives for the next plenary session of the Verkhovna Rada, which will have a limited period of effect until the end of this year, to allow the elections in amalgamated hromadas," he said.
The Head of State noted the importance of ensuring normal life of Ukrainian citizens and the decentralisation reform aimed at supporting people.
