96 Fact-Filled Pages on the First Phase of the Russia-Ukraine War
The Russia-Ukraine War erupted on February 24, 2022, when Russian military forces took much of the world by surprise by launching a massive, multi-front land, air, and sea attack against Ukraine. The Russians targeted Kyiv in the north and other key cities in the east and south, expecting a quick victory. However, the Ukrainians mounted a fierce defense of their country, deploying old and new technology combined with creative tactics and information warfare. Backed by covert NATO assistance, Ukraine repelled the initial onslaught and, by April 26, had stalled Russia’s advance and pushed it out of the northern front, effectively bringing the first phase to a close.
