This project discusses Russian events in recent years especially highlighting the invasion of Ukraine in February of 2022, Russian Policy on Immigration, Foreign relations, its view of its place in the world and how previous acts of aggression in Ukraine will compare to the current invasion. We can see the UN swiftly responding to the current Ukraine crisis with one million refugees already in the care of neighboring UN countries. UN/NATO Response has also delivered humanitarian aid and weapons to the citizens of Ukraine currently stuck within the country. We can see that Russia’s actions have little regard for civilian life,and have either directly or indirectly caused millions of people to be displaced or forced to flee their homes. And finally, how Russian propaganda has influenced some of its citizens to believe the Ukrainians desire Russian support and how often they’ve justified invasions and hostile military operations as “peacekeeping missions”. These events share similar behaviors with that of the former USSR and do not seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
