2. The US Congress voted to transfer articles of impeachment of the president to the Senate. This gives a start to the process, the result of which it will decide whether Donald Trump will retain his post.

3. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky decided to withdraw the draft law he submitted earlier on “On Amending the Constitution of Ukraine (regarding decentralization of power)” and send it for revision. This happened after the project has been criticized at the embassies of Germany, Sweden and Canada.

Macron, B. Johnson and others will take part in it. On the eve of the meeting, Turkey introduced a limited military contingent in Tripoli, and Saraj turned to the world community with a request to send international troops to support his government.

5. President of Russia V. Putin in a message to the Federal Assembly proposed a radical change in the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
