DNIPRO, Ukraine — The US warned of a possible escalation of Russian attacks on civilian areas in Ukraine, which would coincide with the war-torn country’s Independence Day on Wednesday, and urged Americans to leave as soon as possible.
The main Ukrainian holiday, which also marks six months since the Russian invasion, is set to be muted this year after being celebrated with military parades and mass gatherings in recent years. No major events are expected and officials in major cities have called for increased awareness and additional curfews to encourage residents to stay home.
