Why is Russia invading Ukraine?
In December 2021, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he had no plans to attack Ukraine, but on February 24, 2022 he launched an attack on the country.
It is believed that Putin wants to reconquer many territories lost in the collapse of the Soviet Union.
A month into the war, Putin offered to end the war if Ukraine would give up the city of Mariupol, but Ukraine rejected the chilling ultimatum.
As a result of the invasion, many countries have imposed sanctions on Russia, which have reportedly already begun to hurt their economies.
It is currently unclear whether NATO countries will be involved in the war.
