Six months ago, the lives of millions of Ukrainians were transformed forever: cities became war zones, squares became mass graves, funerals for young children multiplied, and millions became refugees.

Putin launched what he called a special military operation under the pretext of “denazifying Ukraine.” In six months, thousands died and continue to die.
