After 10 days of untold human suffering, Putin’s war in Ukraine continues

Last updated on March 15, 2022

Russian President Vladimir Putin launched what he called “a special military operation” against Ukraine on Feb. 24, de facto declaring war on the country.

Putin claimed to have “no ill intentions towards neighboring countries” and denied firing missiles on civil infrastructure during what he called a campaign to “disarm and de-Nazify” Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Russian troops have shelled civilians in residential areas, burned houses, schools, and kindergartens all over Ukraine.

Ten days after Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine began, hundreds of Ukrainians are dead, thousands are injured, and over a million are displaced.

The Kyiv Independent publishes photographs of Ukrainian cities, destroyed by the Kremlin.
