Infographics: Russia’s Invasion Of Ukraine Marks One Year

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has become a grinding war of attrition that has killed thousands of people and displaced millions, ravaged cities and destroyed vital infrastructure across the country.

One year ago, a massive buildup of Russian troops along Ukraine’s borders was the precursor to war. At the time, many questioned the ability of the Ukrainians to withstand an invasion, predicting the imminent fall of the capital Kyiv.

Instead, Ukrainian fighters have held the capital and continue to resist Russian attempts to control territory, helped by a massive influx of Western weapons, ammunition and equipment. The war has become a grinding conflict that U.S. officials say could last for months or even years.

U.S. President Joe Biden promised new military aid for Ukraine worth $500 million during a surprise visit to Kyiv on Monday, Feb 20, almost a year to the day since Russia’s invasion.
