Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24.

March 23 is the 28th day of the war against Russia. The Russian invaders are present in the north, east and south of the country, shelling peaceful cities throughout Ukraine using artillery, and bombing them from the air.

Since the beginning of the war, the most difficult situations have been seen in Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Sumy, Mariupol, Kyiv and the capital's outskirts.

The invaders are also trying to occupy those territories of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts that have been under Ukrainian government control since the war started in 2014.

Invading Russian forces have shelled cities, residential buildings, hospitals, schools, and churches, while at same time Russian propaganda media falsely claim that Russian forces are only attacking “military targets.” Russian troops are engaged in looting, shelling civilians, and disrupting agreed humanitarian corridors for the evacuation of civilians. Cases of violence and abductions of Ukrainian journalists, activists, and representatives of local authorities by invading Russian troops have been observed in the Temporary Occupied Territories.
