On February 24, 2022 Russia invaded Ukraine, causing many to speculate that we have entered a new era of geopolitical brinkmanship and even world war. But many are also closely watching the human impacts of the invasion--noting the violence and loss the people of Ukraine are enduring, and the bravery and resistance many display.
