MOSCOW | The Latest: Former Ukraine presidents warn over martial law
MOSCOW — The Latest on tensions between Russia and Ukraine (all times local):
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has halved his proposal for martial law in the country to 30 days, an apparent concession to opponents.
The reduction means that Ukrainian authorities can call the presidential election at the end of December, giving enough time for it to take place at the end of March as expected.
Poroshenko said in a televised address that he has decided to cut the suggested timeframe from 60 days.
