On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a new undeclared war against Ukraine, a country Russia first invaded in 2014 and has partially occupied for almost nine years. The war is Europe’s largest armed conflict in decades. Ukraine has successfully waged defensive and counteroffensive operations bolstered by extensive military assistance, chiefly from the United States and Europe. Still, Russia occupies more than 15% of Ukraine’s territory and has intensified its attacks on infrastructure nationwide. The war to date is estimated to have led to the deaths of tens of thousands and the forcible displacement of more than 14 million people.
