A parliamentary committee has considered a petition to allow sailors to travel abroad during martial law after the petition secured the 25,000 signatures required for its consideration, the CFTS portal reports, citing The Maritime Telegraph.

According to the report, the maritime community’s petition to allow sailors to leave the country for work during martial law was rejected.

Consequently, the restrictions on travel abroad will not be lifted for sailors soon.

In addition, according to the report, the issue of granting certain categories of citizens the right to travel outside the country during martial law should be decided solely based on the need to ensure Ukraine’s defense, the functioning of its economy and critical infrastructure, and on a case-by-case basis.
