6 months of war in Ukraine: these figures tell the story of the Russian invasion
The six months of war that followed between Europe’s two largest nations sowed widespread death and forced millions from their homes. The battlefield has shifted dramatically across the land, but wherever the conflict has moved, it has left ruinous devastation in its wake.
Six months into the war, the scale of the conflict can be measured not only in terms of weaponry and territory, but also in terms of the ever-increasing human cost. Civilians by the thousands became the victims of the fighting, while those who escaped fled across Europe in a bid to rebuild their lives.
Once a prosperous and young European country, parts of Ukraine now lie in ruins. These figures show the extent of the worst European conflict since the Second World War.
