Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has signed a law on a special local government order in some districts in Donetsk and Luhansk regions, the presidential press service informs.

"Document No. 1680-VII defines a temporary order of local government and the activity of local authorities in certain districts in Donetsk and Luhansk regions," the report says.

The main purpose is to create conditions for normalizing the situation as quickly as possible, restoring law and order, constitutional rights and freedoms of citizens, returning residents to abandoned places of permanent residence, restoring life in cities, towns and villages and developing these areas. The rights and legitimate interests of legal persons are also to be restored.

"A special order in these areas is introduced by the law temporarily, for three years from the date of its entry into force," the press service said.
