Russia’s large-scale war against Ukraine On February 24, 2022, Russia attacked Ukraine on the ground and in the air along the entire length of the common border. The territory of Belarus was used for the invasion of Kyiv region with the intention of capturing the capital. In the south, the Russian army, in particular, occupied part of the Zaporizhia and Kherson regions, and in the north – the regions of Sumy region and Chernihiv region.

Russian President Vladimir Putin calls the full-scale invasion a “special operation.” Initially, its goal was defined as “demilitarization and de-Nazification”, later – “protection of Donbas”. And in September and early October, Russia made an attempt to annex the partially occupied Zaporizhia, Kherson, Donetsk, and Luhansk regions. Ukraine and the West have declared that these actions are illegal. On October 12, the UN General Assembly approved a resolution condemning the Russian Federation’s attempt to annex the occupied territories of Ukraine.

The Russian authorities say that the army does not attack civilian objects. At the same time, Russian aviation, missile forces, navy and artillery shell Ukrainian cities every day. Residential buildings and objects of civil infrastructure throughout the territory of Ukraine are subject to destruction.

At the end of October, Ukraine estimated Russia’s losses in the war at more than 70,000 dead soldiers. In September, Russia announced that its losses were less than 6,000 dead. In June, President Zelensky estimated the ratio of losses of Ukraine and Russia as one to five.

Having not overcome the resistance of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the surviving Russian units withdrew from the territory of Kyiv, Chernihiv and Sumy regions in early April. And in September, as a result of a lightning counteroffensive, the Ukrainian army liberated almost the entire occupied part of the Kharkiv region.

On November 11, the Ukrainian Defense Forces pushed the Russian forces out of Kherson.

After the liberation of Kyiv region from Russian troops, facts of mass murders, torture and rape of civilians, including children, were discovered in the cities of Bucha, Irpin, Gostomel and villages of the region.

Ukrainian authorities have declared that Russia is committing genocide. Western countries are involved in confirming the facts of mass murders and investigating them. The Russian Federation rejects accusations of war crimes.

Later, the facts of torture and murder of Ukrainian citizens began to be discovered in almost all settlements that were liberated from Russian occupation. In particular, in Chernihiv Oblast, Kharkiv Oblast, Kherson Oblast.

Since September 2022, fierce battles of the Russian-Ukrainian war have been going on in the east and south of Ukraine.

On June 6, 2023, the dam of the Kakhov reservoir was completely destroyed (it was under the control of the Russian army from the beginning of March 2022, and in October it was mined by the occupiers), which led to the flooding of a large area, human casualties, destruction of agricultural land, pollution of the Dnipro and the Black Sea. Ukraine called it ecocide.

The UN has confirmed the death of 9,701 civilians in Ukraine since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation, according to the report for September 25, 2023. Analysts say the real number of victims is much higher.

In total, since February 24, 2022, the UN recorded 10,582 cases of civilian deaths in Ukraine, as well as at least 19,875 cases of civilian injuries. This was stated by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Turk on February 22, 2024.

“It is likely that the real number of civilian casualties is much higher,” the mission said.
