What Is Happening in Ukraine and Why Is Russia Invading?


Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is entering a new phase. After fierce resistance from the Ukrainian military, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s forces have pivoted to consolidate their positions toward the south and east of the country as they begin a fresh offensive, bombing residential areas and civilian targets.  Ukraine has meanwhile uncovered what it says is evidence of war crimes committed in Bucha and other towns near Kyiv while under Russian control. Russian attacks on population centers have driven four million people out of Ukraine.

The U.S. and its European allies are providing military equipment to Ukraine and have deployed sanctions and other measures to inflict economic pain on the Russian leader. President Biden has accused Mr. Putin of war crimes and described the invasion as a “genocide,” saying the Russian leader is “trying to wipe out the idea of being Ukrainian.” The Kremlin called his remarks unacceptable.
