“By the end of the year, Ukraine will have received about $20 billion more in international assistance and support,” said Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.

According to the Minister of Defense of Ukraine, the first four HIMARS systems sent by partner countries cause more damage to the enemy than the classic time-tested 152-caliber guns. Oleksiy Reznikov notes that the current warfare has revealed efficiency of high technologies applied to resisting the aggression.

The Verkhovna Rada adopted a law on creating the DNA registry in Ukraine, necessary to quickly identify people committing criminal offenses or searching for missing persons. Mandatory state registration at the budget  expense is subject to genomic information of persons who committed socially dangerous acts. The right to voluntary registration of genomic information will be provided to all citizens of Ukraine, but it will be chargeable. 

The electronic library Booknet emphasizes that after the full-scale invasion began, Ukrainians increasingly started reading less russian-language content, including books. Ukrainian authors also began to publish more in Ukrainian rather than russian.
