Martial law and mobilization expires in Ukraine on February 14.

Since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion, martial law and general mobilization in Ukraine have been extended nine times. This will be the tenth such vote of the parliament since the beginning of the all-out war. As MP Yaroslav Zheleznyak reported, the document will be adopted this week.

First, the President of Ukraine signs two decrees, then they are submitted to the Verkhovna Rada for approval. After that, they are considered by the Defense Committee, and then voted in the hall. In the end, the president signs bills into law, approving his decree.

On November 8, the Verkhovna Rada extended martial law in Ukraine for 90 days – until February 14, 2024, and also agreed to extend general mobilization for the same period.
