The Polish government has brought in a near-total ban on abortion in that country, only permitted now in cas...

Early in the morning of Feb. 24, as Krylyuk and his colleagues prepared for a series of EMS competitions, they heard the news. Russia was invading their country. Ukraine was under attack.
