On February 24, 2022, russia* launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine and the Ukrainian-russian War (also known as the russo-Ukrainian War) began. The first stage of war started in 2014 with the annexation of Crimea and Eastern regions of Ukraine by russian troops.
To this day, Ukrainian cities are constantly under attack and so many people lost their lives and homes. Millions of people fled the country, thousands were killed, or wounded. Many families with young kids found refuge in European countries. A small fraction of refugees came to the United States of America.
