    Prof. William Snyder This selection of photos shows us the cost of the Russian invasion of Ukraine - the suffering and the loss the Ukrainian people are enduring. Too many times photos from conflicts show not much more than the destruction of structures. But this is the REAL cost. Well done.

Russkiy mir - suffering in Ukraine From the first day of the special operation the Russians began the "denazification" of Ukraine and started to enforce the so-called Russkiy mir. The concept of the Russian world, which Putin's Russia is trying to impose by force in Ukraine, brings only death, destruction and suffering. For the time being, the Ukrainians have been united in their fight against Russia and are defending themselves with unprecedented determination against a much stronger enemy.
