Ukraine on Wednesday Feb 23, 2022 declared a 30-day state of emergency and began calling up reservists aged 18-60 for service of up to one year into the armed forces amid fears of an all-out invasion by Russia.

On February 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was recognizing the independence of territories under the control of Moscow-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine and that he would send Russian troops there, moves condemned by Kyiv, the UN, the West, and various countries.
