Russia-Ukraine War: Info and ways to help

Information on the conflict

In the culmination of the ongoing then-8-years-long war between Russia and Ukraine, Russia has declared that it recognizes the "people's republics" in Donbas as "independent" on Feb. 22. This move was meant as a set-up to jeopardize years of diplomatic negotiations around the conflict and disrupt peace in the country.Prior to the recognition, pro-Kremlin channels have spread false justifications for the ongoing war. In a speech announcing the recognition, Putin blamed Ukrainians themselves for the escalation, calling it “a colony with puppets at its helm.”Russia has declared a full-scale invasion early in the morning of Feb. 24.
