    On 24 February this year, Russia invaded Ukraine under the command of its President Vladimir Putin. The escalation had begun in 2014 and Putin has claimed that he wants to “demilitarise and denazify” Ukraine.

    The war has created total chaos and destruction in Ukraine and global food shortages. Around 10 million Ukrainians have fled the country.

    Russian forces have continued to bomb both military and civilian targets far from the frontline of the war. Places like Kyiv, Lviv, and Serhiivka near Odesa, and Kremenchuk, among others. The Luhansk Oblast region was fully captured by the Russian forces on 3 July.

    Ukrainian President Zelensky was lauded for not fleeing the country and staying in Kyiv to fight back. The invasion has since received widespread international condemnation. Several companies and organizations withdrew their services from Russia. The Russian currency has plummeted since the invasion began. Several countries have imposed sanctions on Russia.
