It's not your problem
Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine took place on February 24, 2022. During this time, more than 9,000 people died, not counting tens of thousands in the occupied territories. Overly 12 million people have been forced to flee their homes. In fact, the Russian-Ukrainian war began 8 years ago with the occupation of Crimea and the invasion of Donbas, which is often forgotten.
Every war has irreversible consequences on many levels, and above all on human life. The war that is taking place several thousand kilometers away seems alien. Distance affects the experience of war, attitudes towards it and even awareness and interest. Nevertheless, large-scale wars always lead to severe social, economic and political consequences, which are felt not only in the countries directly involved in the wars.
