Russia and Ukraine

On February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his military to invade Ukraine, a significant escalation in the Russo-Ukrainian War that has simmered since 2014. Since February, the Russian military has struggled to achieve Putin’s initial objective of capturing Ukraine’s capitol, Kiev, and overturning its government. As the invasion drags on, Putin has increasingly resorted to nuclear saber-rattling, in an apparent show of force against the NATO-aligned forces staunchly supporting Ukraine.
