Russia Attacks Ukraine

Russia+Attacks+Ukraine

Ukraine is a European country and last night Russia invaded Ukraine. At least 57 people have been killed in what is called a “Full-scale war” targeting countries from the east,north, and south.

President Vladimir Putin warned other countries that any attempt to interfere would “lead to consequences you have never seen in history”.

Russia is invading Ukraine because Putin claims the objective of the attack is to defend the Russian-speakers in Ukraine, especially those in the two self-declared republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, which left Ukrainian control in 2014.

But Ukraine has denied Moscow’s claims that it is forcibly trying to take them back. Brianna says, “ It is unnecessary and if the United States gets involved then it is going to turn into something bigger”.

aTamya says, “I think that it’s crazy how Russia just abruptly decided to invade Ukraine because this is a life-changing and historical event that can affect many lives, not only in Ukraine but also in the U.S.”
