Ukraine detains 2200 conscript-age men

Ukraine’s border guard agency says about 2200 Ukrainian men of fighting age have been detained so far while trying to leave the country in violation of martial law.

The agency said on Sunday that some of them have used forged documents and others tried to bribe border guards to get out of the country.

It said some have been found dead while trying to cross the Carpathian mountains in adverse weather, without specifying the number.

Under martial law, Ukrainian men between 18 and 60 are barred from leaving the country so that they can be called up to fight.
