People's deputies settled the legal regime in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. In particular, during the war, the decision to recognize the territory as temporarily occupied is made by the National Security and Defense Council, and put into effect by the President of Ukraine.
300 people's deputies voted for the corresponding draft law. This happened during a meeting of the Council on April 21.
The Council supported the draft law on the legal regime in the occupied territory
Adoption of the draft law of Ukraine “On Amendments to some laws of Ukraine on the regulation of the legal regime in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine” will provide a clear legal regulation of the activities of the state, taking into account the real current situation, the explanatory note says.
