Two weeks have passed since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine has begun. The Russian occupiers are promising to organize humanitarian corridors and a cease-fire so that civilians can leave the city. Simultaneously, they are shelling a maternity clinic and children’s hospital in Mariupol, and spreading fakes about biological laboratories in Ukraine, presumably getting ready to use the biological weapons themselves.

Ukraine continues to defend itself from Russian aggression. In some areas, the military is regaining territory. The Ukrainian government is organizing humanitarian corridors to evacuate civilians from bombing, volunteers continue to help the army and refugees, and medics are saving lives. However, Russia continues to spread fake information about Ukraine and Ukrainians. We have collected a new series of photos which show recent events.

12th–13th March

The 19th day of a full-scale war continues, despite Russian propaganda threatening to capture Kyiv and “denazify” Ukraine in two days. Instead, the entire world has been convinced for nearly three weeks now, whose army is the new Nazis, evading even the definintion of “war” by continuing to refer to the aggression against Ukraine as “a special operation.”
