Ukraine And Russia War
Updated: Oct 30, 2022
The Ukraine and Russia war started on February 24, 2022, an event that will have lasting effects. President Vladimir Putin wanted to take over Ukraine. So he and his people started bombing Ukraine. The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights confirmed that around 13,000 Ukrainian soldiers and civilians were killed. Approximately 5,800 people were killed in the conflict in Ukraine and the situation of prisoners of war in Russia.
Many people did not have access to food, shelter, and basic necessities during the war. Because of this, many countries have helped them by supplying aid, such as the U.S. Putin said that any countries that interfere with his job would have war.
In many states in the U.S, prices went up in stores and gas. Many people even had difficulties going to work because of the increased cost of transportation. Food costs also increased because it costs more for them to be imported. Many people have struggled because wages are pretty much the same, despite the increased cost of living. Hopefully, the effects of this war are temporary and will eventually get solved!
