War in Ukraine: what you need to know
The last: Ukraine’s deputy prime minister rejected the Kremlin’s call to surrender Mariupol during a widespread guerrilla war. The war has displaced nearly 1 in 4 people in Ukraine, including more than 3 million Ukrainians to flee the country.
The fight: Russia – which has launched more than 1,000 missiles to date – increasingly relies on “dumb” bombs to bring down cities and civilians. The Russian attack on Ukraine has been extensive with strikes and attacks across the country, and Russia has been accused of committing war crimes.
The weapons: Ukraine uses weapons such as Javelin anti-tank missiles and Switchblade “kamikaze” drones from the United States and other allies to combat the Russian military’s superior numbers and heavier weapons.
Oil prices: Sanctions against Russia are pushing gas prices to new heights. Here’s why – and how long the wave could last.
In Russia: Putin has shut down the flow of information within Russia, where the war isn’t even called a war. “Information fighters” from around the world are trying to penetrate Putin’s propaganda wall.
How you can help: Here are ways people in the US can help support the Ukrainian people and what people around the world have donated.
