Ukraine: World shows solidarity with Ukraine on anniversary of Russian invasion
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin approved what he would call a ’special military operation’ in Ukraine.
In fact, it was a straightforward invasion, one that has so far cost the lives of tens of thousands of civilians and soldiers in Ukraine and tens of thousands of Putin’s own soldiers, many of them conscripts.
One year later, and with the battles still raging, people across Europe have been commemorating the first anniversary.
In another Russian neighbour, Georgia, citizens and activists marked the beginning of the war.
