Shelling of illegal armed formations on civilians in Donbas, EU-Ukraine Open Skies agreement

Illegal armed formations carried out a series of powerful attacks along the contact line on Donbas. Russian-backed militants violated ceasefire 47 times over the past day. The shells hit houses, schools, kindergarten, gas pipeline and railway infrastructure. Civilians and servicemen were wounded.

Ukrainian servicemen say it’s not time to relax – the enemy is unpredictable. It is necessary to conduct regular military training and modernize weapons. At the same time, servicemen have enough military experience.

Ukraine will launch single information platform to ensure daily informing the public about the security situation and measures taken to strengthen the defense capability of the state. The resource will be called “UATogether”.

Ukrainian Parliament ratifies the Open Skies agreement with the European Union. The treaty ends flight restrictions that were previously applied to EU and Ukrainian carriers. It is designed to create a Common Aviation Area between Ukraine, the EU and its Member States.

“Ukraine is everywhere” – under this slogan, the month of cultural diplomacy will be held on Wikipedia. Ukrainian Wikipedia became the 16th in the world in terms of the number of articles. But there is not enough information about Ukraine in foreign languages. Participants from different countries will create and update articles about Ukraine and Ukrainian culture. According to the organizers, this will help to better represent our state in the world.
