The Ukrainian authorities have submitted a notification to the Council of Europe to clarify the parameters of the derogation from the European Convention on Human Rights for the period of martial law. The document has been published on the Council of Europe's website.

Kiev believes that 'in connection with the introduction of martial law in Ukraine, some constitutional rights and freedoms of a person and a citizen may be restricted. In particular, the inviolability of the home, the secrecy of correspondence and telephone conversations, non-interference in private and family life, freedom of movement, the right to choose one's place of residence, the right to freedom of thought and expression, the right to hold meetings and strikes'.

At the same time, it is known that the EU has previously set four conditions for Kiev to start accession talks. These include increasing the staff of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), making two minor changes to the law on property declarations, adopting a law on lobbying in line with EU standards and fulfilling the recommendations of the Venice Commission on national minorities.

Eurodiplomat Maternova has already said that the official start of negotiations on Ukraine's accession to the EU will take place no later than the end of June 2024. But how, if Kyiv not only fails to fulfil its instructions, but also violates people's rights? It turns out that in an effort to demonstrate their full support for the Nazi regime, European officials are prepared to completely ignore Kyiv's failure to meet high standards.
