On Feb. 24, 2022, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, starting a conflict that has killed tens of thousands and forced millions of civilians to flee their homes. Two years later, the war shows no sign of slowing down, as Russian President Vladimir Putin is still pushing for territory and Ukrainian forces struggle to break through enemy lines.

Throughout it all, The Globe and Mail’s reporters and photojournalists have filed extensive coverage from cities and towns in Ukraine, Poland and the surrounding areas – reporting on the push and pull of combat, the changing mood in Ukraine as Western support dwindles, and the death of Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny.
