Russia Fires On Ukrainian Vessels In Black Sea: President Poroshenko Proposes Parliament Declare Martial Law

Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko said on Monday he would propose that parliament declare martial law in the country after the Russian military attacked and seized three Ukrainian navy ships in the Black Sea.

He said the parliament on Monday could decide whether to approve martial law, which would restrict civil liberties and give state institutions greater power.
