2 months of Russia’s devastating war in before and after photos

April 24 marks two months since Russia began its all-out war against Ukraine.

The unprovoked Russian aggression has already cost Ukraine a devastating price, and it continues to rise every day.

According to President Volodymyr Zelensky, since Feb. 24, Russia has launched 2,000 missiles at the Ukrainian territory. Many of those attacks were indiscriminate or specifically targeted civilian population and infrastructure.

Besides killing civilians with shelling and airstrikes, Russian forces have been torturing, raping, and murdering civilians in occupied territories. Prosecutor General’s Office is investigating 7,882 war crimes allegedly committed by Russian troops. Following reports of the Russians’ atrocities, two countries, Estonia and Latvia, have officially recognized Moscow’s actions as genocide against Ukraine.

In the two months of the invasion, 2,435 civilian Ukrainians were killed, and 2,946 civilians were injured, according to the United Nations. However, the true number of casualties is expected to be much higher since data from the occupied territories and areas with heavy hostilities is not accessible at the moment. Local authorities in Mariupol have estimated that this city only can account for up to 22,000 killed civilians.
