news of the day

Wednesday was a fairly calm day – compared to the wave of threats from the West, official declarations and other chain reactions from the vigil.

On the front line, in the east, the situation still seems under control, although a Ukrainian soldier died in a bombardment by pro-Russian separatists. And on both sides of the border, everyone is calling back their civilians. Ukraine has recommended that its nationals leave Russia “immediately”. Moscow, for its part, organized the evacuation of its diplomatic personnel present in Kiev.
