RE: What is the exact reason as to which Russia and Ukraine are in war Crises?
Air, land, and sea, Russia has launched a deadly offensive against Ukraine, a European democracy of 44 million people. For months President Vladimir Putin denied that he would attack his neighbor, but then broke the peace agreement, sending troops to the north, east, and south of Ukraine.
As the death toll rises, he is now accused of disrupting peace in Europe and what happens next could jeopardize the continent’s entire security system.
Where and why did the Russian army attack?
Airports and military bases were hit first, near cities throughout Ukraine, including Boryspil’s largest international airport in Kyiv.
Then tanks and troops entered Ukraine in northeast Ukraine, near Kharkiv, a city of 1.4 million people; east near Luhansk, from neighboring Belarus in the north and Crimea in the south. Paratroops seized an important airport outside Kyiv while Russian troops were stationed in the Ukrainian Ukrainian cities of Odesa and Mariupol as well.
Before the attacks began, President Putin went on television announcing that Russia could not feel “safe, prosperous and existent” because of what he called an ongoing threat from modern Ukraine.
