“The Era of Peace in Europe Is Over”: Ukraine Issues Dire Warning as War Grinds into 3rd Year

HeadlineFeb 23, 2024

The U.N. human rights chief warned there is “no end in sight” to the war in Ukraine, nearly two years after Russia’s invasion on February 24, 2022. The U.N. said over 14 million Ukrainians have been forced to flee their homes in the past two years. About one-third of those have since returned home. The U.N. says it has confirmed over 10,000 civilian deaths, though the true toll is likely much higher.
Ukraine is upping pressure on the U.S. and other allies to supply more funding and arms after Russians captured the eastern city of Avdiivka last week. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba offered an ominous take on the current state of the war at the Munich Security Conference.

Dmytro Kuleba: “The era of peace in Europe is over. And every time Ukrainian soldiers withdraw from a Ukrainian town because of the lack of ammunition, think of it not only in terms of defending democracy and world-based order, but also in terms of Russia getting — Russian soldiers getting a few kilometers closer to your towns.”
