Countering Russia’s Aggression in Ukraine
Ukraine is under attack.
In the wake of Ukraine’s 2013-2014 Revolution of Dignity (aka Euromaydan), Russia illegally seized and occupied Crimea and started an armed conflict in eastern Ukraine. Five years on, Russia continues to arm, train, lead, and fight alongside the anti-government forces in eastern Ukraine, while falsely insisting it is not a party to the conflict. The fighting has resulted in approximately 13,000 deaths, caused the internal displacement of 1.5 million people, and forced more than 3.4 million more to require assistance and protection in a largely forgotten humanitarian catastrophe. Critical civilian infrastructure continues to be damaged or disrupted, exacerbating humanitarian needs. Russia continues to stall diplomatically as the situation deteriorates.
Russia is directly responsible for pain and suffering in Ukraine.
Please take a look at this exceptionally well designed presentation, which uses maps, satellite imagery, summary data, stark photography & a brief video clip to introduce the viewer to the sobering basics of Russia’s multi-dimensional ongoing attack on Ukraine. The presentation was prepared by the US Dept. of State, and up-to-date through the end of 2018 and Russia’s attack on Ukrainian navy vessels near the Kerch Strait. Please follow the link below:
