Ensuring national security is the key to the development of the state and its recognition in the international arena. The most acute problems and issues that may arise in the field of ensuring national security under martial law are studied and discussed in this article. A detailed analysis of the current situation in the indicated socially important sphere is also made, on the basis of which certain steps are proposed regarding the improvement of the current state of affairs in the protection of key national security. Among other things, emphasis is placed on the critical importance and necessity of proper observance of the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of citizens guaranteed by the Constitution even during martial law or any other crisis or emergency situation. The authors highlighted the key elements of liberal democracy and the real rule of law in Ukraine, with respect to which there should be no compromise, and which, accordingly, should be reliably preserved by the state in the form of its competent agencies.
