Russia prepares for wider appeal

Earlier this week, according to a UK Ministry of Defense report, Russian State Duma deputies introduced a bill to change the age limit for men on conscription for military service, setting it between 21 and 30 years old instead of 18 to 27 years old.

Intelligence services believe the law will “likely” be passed and come into force in January. “Russia still does not officially recruit conscripts for military operations in Ukraine, although at least hundreds of conscripts have already been sent there due to administrative misunderstandings or after being forced to sign contracts,” the report said. . At the same time, many men between the ages of 18 and 21 apply for benefits to continue their studies.

The International Monetary Fund said on March 17 that its board had approved changes to its fiscal policy aimed at countries facing “exceptionally high uncertainty.” The move is seen as a way to open a new loan program for Ukraine as it enters its second year of fighting the Russian invasion.

The IMF said in a statement: “The changes will affect situations of exceptionally high uncertainty associated with exogenous shocks that are beyond the control of the country’s authorities and the reach of their economic policies, and which generate greater risks of contagion. than usual”.

DreamApp, a Florida-based sleep research app developer, recently conducted a study on the sleep quality of 745 Ukrainians and the impact of the Russian invasion on their health.

Over 82% of participants reported remembering their dreams, which DreamApp says indicates “light sleep that does not provide adequate rest.”

“When the brain doesn’t get enough sleep, traumatic experiences can’t be adequately processed, leading to additional stress on mental health,” says Jesse Lyon, Senior Specialist at DreamApp. “It effectively delays the experience in the brain, causing a state of constant tension and heightened response.”
