President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Ukraine should “think” about how to hold presidential elections, but the law currently prohibits this during martial law.

Evidence: Zelensky in an interview with the British television channel Channel 4 News, its full version made public Office of the President

direct speech: “I didn't postpone (elections – Ed.), it's automatic. I couldn't hold them because, first of all, the law prevents me. It doesn't stop me from holding elections, it just prohibits. In general all institutions should do so.


The Verkhovna Rada must vote and issue a mandate for elections, and they must raise the issue and vote. They cannot break the law because of the prohibition of the law. It is a forbidden situation to hold elections during wartime in our country.

Even if this can be done, what to do with the temporarily occupied territories and how to conduct legal elections, which will be recognized by the world, if there are more than 6 million (citizens – ed.) abroad, do they have the necessary infrastructure, online format elections unfortunately we are not there?

If you ask me, I think we should think about how to do that. If I can do it tomorrow, I will.”

details: To a clarifying question, “Are the circumstances different,” Zelenskyi replied: “The circumstances and the law. We have to change the circumstances and change the law.”
