In February 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine in anticipation of a quick and complete victory. That did not happen. Instead, Russia's brutal, unprovoked war has run into determined resistance from the Ukrainian government and people. Even so, Russia's war on Ukraine has destroyed huge swaths of the country, including hospitals, apartment buildings, and schools. It has displaced millions and killed and injured thousands. Much of the global community has rallied around Ukraine, providing weapons and financial aid and imposing strong financial sanctions on Russia. Months into the war, no one could predict when it would end.
