Russian invasion of Ukraine 9237

According to media reports, 348 members of parliament - well above the required minimum of 226 votes - voted today for the fifth extension of the special regime.

This means that men between the ages of 18 and 60, with few exceptions, will continue to be subject to compulsory military service.

They will not be allowed to leave the country.

The temporary regulation will be valid until May 20.

In connection with the large number of casualties during the military actions, videos are circulating online showing how calling cards are being handed out to random passers-by in Ukrainian cities.

Ukraine reported Russian shelling of civilian objects

For almost a year, Kyiv managed to repel the Russian advance with the help of the West.

Russia controls almost 20% of the territories in Ukraine, including the Crimean peninsula, which was annexed in 2014, BTA notes.
