Adoptions are another facet of life halted by war in Ukraine
The ripple effects of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have been devastating for families of all kinds — including those who have seen their prospective adoptions put on hold. Ukraine was once one of the US’s most frequent partners in international adoptions, but the war changed all that: The embattled country has halted all international adoptions as the country copes with the turmoil unleashed on its courts and social services. Many children, including orphans, have also fled or been displaced.

Russia’s claimed seizure of a Mariupol steel plant that became a symbol of Ukrainian tenacity gives Russian President Vladimir Putin a sorely needed victory in the war he began, capping a nearly three-month siege that left a city in ruins and more than 20,000 residents feared dead.

Russia is likely experiencing a shortage of appropriate reconnaissance UAVs, used to identify targets to be struck by combat jets or artillery, which is exacerbated by limitations in its domestic manufacturing capacity resulting from sanctions, the report said.
