Putin declares martial law in annexed regions | Ukraine latest | DW News

Russian President Vladimir Putin has introduced martial law in the partly-occupied regions of Ukraine that Moscow claims to have annexed.

The Kremlin published a decree saying martial law would be introduced from early Thursday in the Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions. Putin didn’t initially spell out the measures steps that would be taken under martial law in the regions.

Furthermore, the head of the Russian-controlled region of Kherson in southern Ukraine says pro-Kremlin administrative officials are transporting people away from the regional capital to the left bank of the Dnipro River ahead of an expected offensive by Ukrainian forces.

“The entire administration is already moving today,” Moscow-installed regional head Vladimir Saldo, said on Russian state television. Saldo earlier announced the civilians would be transported from four communities near the Dnipro River, citing the risk that Ukrainian shelling could damage a nearby dam.

Some 50,000 to 60,000 people are to be relocated from the Russian-occupied southern region of Kherson, according to Russian state-run news agency TASS.
