Russia-Ukraine War: What to know on Russia’s war in Ukraine

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has entered its 12th day following what Ukrainian authorities described as increased shelling of encircled cities and another failed attempt to evacuate civilians from the port of Mariupol. Russia announced yet another cease-fire and humanitarian corridors to allow civilians to flee Ukraine starting on Monday. Two previous cease-fire attempts have failed. Moscow’s armed forces continued to pummel some Ukrainian cities with rockets even after the announcement. The Ukrainians forced from their country increased to 1.7 million, as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy urged his people to continue to resist. Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned Ukraine’s statehood is in jeopardy and likened the West’s sanctions on Russia to “declaring war.”
