Rather than a tool to subjugate and control the people (as many in the West imagine it) martial law in Ukraine is intended to open up resources and ways to protect the people.
Ukraine's previously unstable political situation caused various problems for the economy. When Victor Yushchenko came into power several reforms took place and Ukraine's economy grew some 12.1% in the year 2004. Unfortunately high oil prices as well as an increase in inflation caused the economy of Ukraine to slow down in 2005.
