On February 24, 2022, at 4 a.m., Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a “special military operation” in the occupied Donbas. Russia launched missile strikes on Ukrainian territory and launched a direct large-scale invasion in four directions. The armed forces of Ukraine reject the enemy, the plan of the blitzkrieg – to take Kiev in two or three days – failed, the Russian army withdrew from the capital. The Russian military is committing thousands of war crimes and crimes against humanity across Ukraine.
