Russia-Ukraine conflict: The story so far
Russia launched a wide-ranging attack on Ukraine on Thursday, hitting cities and bases with airstrikes or shelling, as civilians piled into trains and cars to flee. In announcing a major military operation, Russian President Putin deflected global condemnation and cascading new sanctions — and chillingly referred to his country’s nuclear arsenal as he threatened any foreign country attempting to interfere with “consequences you have never seen.”
Ukraine’s government said Russian tanks and troops rolled across the border in what it called a “full-scale war” that could rewrite the geopolitical order and whose fallout already reverberated around the globe.
Ukraine’s military said it has shot down five Russian military planes and one of its helicopter while Russia denied the claim.
Putin, meanwhile, defended the move saying it was necessary to attack Ukraine to “defend Russia”.
The North-Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) said the “brutal act of war” shattered peace on the European continent, as the US-led alliance mobilized more troops to move toward eastern Europe.
