The toll of russian casualties is growing. The invaders’ command expands the practice of postponing rotations of advanced units for an indefinite period without their additional staffing.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy submitted to the Verkhovna Rada bills on extension of martial law and general mobilization in Ukraine. The Head of State proposes to extend martial law for 90 days, starting from 05:30 am on August 23, 2022. Thus, martial law will be valid until at least November 20.

The Security and Defense Forces of Ukraine released a joint statement on the captured defenders of Mariupol. “We call on the entire civilized world to prevent the trial announced by the executioners in Mariupol over the Ukrainian Defenders. We demand to immediately send representatives of the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross to the places where Ukrainian prisoners of war are held, first of all, Olenivka,” the statement said.

The Ministry of Culture and Information Policy is developing a bill on a special status of English in Ukraine as the language of international communication. The ministry says that the draft law provides for a significant expansion of the scope of English in Ukraine. English will also become mandatory in certain public areas where international communications are available. Currently, an interdepartmental working group is being created to prepare legislative acts ensuring the functioning of English as a language of international communication.
