The situation has been turning more tense between Russia and Ukraine ahead of Ukrainian Independence day and the six-month anniversary of the start of the Russia’s invasion.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian leaders have banned any large gatherings or any public celebrations in the capital city of Kyiv until Thursday. They are more concerned about the attack during both the Independence Day holiday and the six-month anniversary of Russia’s invasion, which is also August 24.

At the same time, Kyiv leaders have asked people to work from their homes when possible. They are asking people to take any warnings or alerts seriously.

In retaliation to warnings or rumours about any attack from Russia’s side, the President of Ukraine said any attacks by Russia during the holiday would be met with a stronger response. He also said Ukraine would continue to push to reunify Crimea, a region taken over by Russia in 2014.

While fearing about any attack, the United States has warned any American citizens still in Ukraine to leave as soon as possible. The U.S. State Department added on Monday that it recently received information that Russia planned to increase attacks on non-military targets.
