Understanding the 2022 Russian Invasion of Ukraine

Why has Russia invaded Ukraine?

On 22 February 2022 Russia invaded one of its neighbouring countries – Ukraine.

There has been conflict between the two countries since 2014 and despite Russia building up a lot of troops on the border, many people were still shocked when Russian President Vladimir Putin actually sent the Russian army to invade.

Since then the world has been urging Mr Putin to stop his attacks. Ukraine’s army has been fighting against the Russian army, and the rest of the world has been using other methods with the aim of forcing Russia to stop its actions.
