About Russian Vs Ukraine
A year into Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the battle has roiled Europe and triggered an international refugee crisis. Millions of Ukrainians are displaced or living in areas that are under siege, and civilian losses continue to mount.
The war has created a humanitarian disaster that could surpass the human cost of Europe’s recent history. Over six million people have fled their homes, many in need of lifesaving assistance.
Despite the devastating consequences, the West has maintained its support for Ukraine and pushed for an end to the conflict. A Madrid Summit decision has helped to set in motion a strategy that will enable Ukraine to defeat the aggressor and limit Russia’s ability to attack other countries.
In addition, the war has destabilized and reshaped Russia’s relationship with its neighbours, as well as with China. Moscow’s regional rivals are apprehensive that Putin may use aggression against their territories in the future. Sweden and Finland have recently applied for NATO membership, a step that highlights the gravity of this threat.
