Warring parties

Since the war began, the Russian army, separatists, Chechen mercenaries, Russian-friendly saboteurs, and Russian-affiliated militias have wreaked havoc, destruction, deaths and injuries, and displacement in Ukraine.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is a terrorist, a war criminal, a murderer, and ultimately a scum who threatens the entire world.

Putin and his bellicose supporters are murderers and war criminals.

But… global solidarity (except for a few Russia-friendly nations) is growing strongly. There are said to be people from countries who have agreed to fight alongside the Ukrainian defenders.

We also have numbers on casualties so far.
