Current situation in Ukraine
On February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a war against Ukraine. A conflict that dates back to 2014 between these two countries. Air strikes are launched across the country, including the capital Kiev. As well as the entry of ground forces from the north, east and south of the country.
This entry into the war is the result of long months of tension between the two countries, as Russia does not accept the rapprochement of Ukraine with Western democracies and even less its desire to join NATO, a point unacceptable to Vladimir Putin who sees it as a threat to its borders.
Many countries support Ukraine and condemn Russia with sanctions. They include: France, the United States, Canada, Australia, Spain, Portugal, Norway, Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria, the United Kingdom, Finland and many others…
Mondassur pays tribute to all Ukrainians who resisted this Russian invasion.
