The Russian invasion of Ukraine entered Day 5 today with no signs of relentless violence ceasing in the former Soviet Republic.

Russian President Vladimir Putin in an aggressive move has ordered the country’s nuclear forces to be on high alert claiming “unfriendly steps” from the West. Russia has the world’s largest nuclear weapons arsenal and a massive number of ballistic missiles. The US slammed Putin’s move calling it “totally unacceptable”.

What we know so far about the Ukraine-Russia war:

There has been a pause on the attacks on the Kyiv axis on February 26-27 and Russian forces are likely to resume operations soon. Ukraine has been holding off well but may not be able to do so if Moscow deploys additional reserves, the Institute for the Study of War said in a report.
