Russia invades Ukraine after months of unrest between the two nations. This is after Russia has dropped warheads on Ukraine in the country’s major cities including Kyiv.

According to a report by CNN, after months of military buildup and brinkmanship, Russian forces have begun an unprecedented military invasion in Ukraine.

Earlier this week, Putin announced a military operation in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine, containing Donetsk and Luhansk, the separatist-held regions that Moscow recognized as independent on Monday — in violation of international law.

European countries and the United States have begun rolling out sanctions in response to Russia’s actions. A whirlwind of diplomatic efforts in recent weeks has so far failed to defuse tensions in the region.
