  • Russiaʼs invasion of Ukraine began on February 24, 2022 at 3:40 a.m. in the Milove area of the Luhansk region, and by 5 a.m. the offensive had spread across the entire territory of Ukraine. Belarus also joined the war, giving Russia territory to attack. From that moment, the Russian occupiers, entering Ukrainian lands, committed various atrocities: they tortured people, shot them, killed them, raped them, and also robbed the houses of Ukrainians.
  • As of January 1, the Armed Forces of Ukraine liberated 40% of the territories occupied by Russia after the full-scale invasion. Defense forces have also liberated 28% of territories captured by the enemy since 2014.
