Ukrainian president noted his principled position was that martial law should not interfere with the holding of elections.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the terms of martial law will not be extended unless Russia goes for a major invasion. Speaking at a press conference in Kyiv Sunday, Dec 16, Poroshenko noted his principled position was that martial law should not interfere with the holding of elections, an UNIAN correspondent reported.

"If large-scale aggression, the invasion of Russian armed forces into the territory of Ukraine beyond the line of contact and the administrative border of [Russia-occupied] Crimea doesn't happen, martial law will not be extended," the president said, adding that the preparation for the presidential elections in Ukraine scheduled for March 31, 2019, will then begin, according to the decision passed by Parliament.
