War in Ukraine: what you need to know
The last: President Biden landed in Europe for urgent talks starting Thursday with NATO, the Group of Seven and the European Council. As Russia’s invasion of Ukraine reached a month, President Zelensky called for a global protest, urging people around the world to take to the streets and speak out against Russian aggression.
The fight: Russia – which has launched more than 1,000 missiles to date – is increasingly relying on “dumb” bombs to wear down cities and civilians. Russia’s assault on Ukraine has been extended with strikes and attacks across the country, and Russia has been accused of committing war crimes.
Arms: Ukraine uses weapons like Javelin anti-tank missiles and Switchblade “kamikaze” drones from the United States and other allies to fight the superior numbers and heavier weapons of the Russian military.
Oil price: Sanctions against Russia are helping gas prices reach new highs. Here’s why — and how long the flare-up could last.
In Russia: Putin blocked the flow of information in Russia, where the war is not even called a war. “Information warriors” around the world are trying to penetrate Putin’s propaganda wall.
How you can help: Here’s how those in the United States can help support the people of Ukraine as well as what people around the world have donated.
