The Ukrainian President said that the military restriction conditioning the movement of citizens had to be canceled.
On Wednesday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced the cancellation of the order emitted Tuesday by Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Valery Zaluzhny which restricted the movement of the citizens in the registered area, having to obtain permission from the local recruitment office if they wanted to leave.
Zelensky’ anoucement about the cancellation of such an order came in light of the widespread criticism; he said that “mistakes should be corrected.” The ”resident continued by saying: “We sorted it out and reviewed the details of yesterday’ decision. The decision must be reversed,” he added, “the details show that the decision was wrong.”
The ”resident made emphasis by saying that there was “no misunderstanding” between him and the military. “There is a war on. We must work as one team. This is how we work. If there is any inconsistency, then these mistakes must be corrected. They are small compared to the strength which our state, the Ukrainian people, and the Armed Forces demonstrate,” he said during Wednesday’s briefing.
Yevgenia Ryabeka, the coordinator of the movement of lawyers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said that the reading of the document could be “a little incomprehensible,” soon after the document was released. She explained that the permission was only needed by the men who wanted to change their place of residence and their registration.

“The decision that without the permission of the military commission men (and soon women) cannot leave their city of residence is nonsense that will cause a social explosion and the collapse of the economy,” explained Pidlasa.
