The 132nd day of heroic resistance of the Ukrainian nation to the russian military invasion continues.


About us: The “Active Community” initiative was launched by activists of the “Republika” Institute after the Euromaidan (2014), which focused on the activation and involvement of Ukrainians in the decision-making process. The goal for 2025: to activate and involve at least 1% of citizens in making decisions and promoting reforms in Ukraine on a systematic basis for the well-being of Ukrainian communities. Today we work in 30 communities in Ukraine.

Ukraine in brief:

The 132nd day of heroic resistance of the Ukrainian nation to the russian military invasion continues.

The aggressor continues to launch missile attacks on military and civilian objects on the territory of Ukraine.

No signs of the formation of enemy offensive groups were detected in the Volyn and Polissya directions. At the same time, the threat of missile and air strikes from the territory of belarus remains.

The invaders used tanks, mortars, barrel and rocket artillery to shell the areas of the settlements of Uda, Dementiivka, Nove, Ruski Tyshki, Tsyrkuny, Kutuzivka, Bazalivka, Pryshyb, Shevelivka, and Protopopivka. The enemy conducted an assault near Sosnivka, was unsuccessful and retreated. The Russians also launched an airstrike in the Kharkiv area.
