Years of a diplomatic impasse between Russia and Ukraine escalated when airstrikes by the Russian Federation were launched against the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, as well as other cities on the morning of Thursday, February 24, 2022. The sharp change of events has threatened to leave millions of Ukrainians displaced, fleeing the country, triggering a potential large-scale humanitarian crisis.
