Today is March 24, a month since Russia declared war on Ukraine, calling it a "military operation." For a month now, their troops have been shelling Ukrainian cities, destroying entire residential areas, and killing civilians. But Russia will face large-scale opposition on all fronts — military, diplomatic, economic, and informational. No one greets the invaders with flowers, Ukrainians do not surrender and do not retreat. The footage of the atrocities of the Russian military is forever reflected not only in the memory of Ukrainians, but also in photographs. We made a selection of photos that illustrate the horrors of war.

The maternity hospital and the children's hospital in Mariupol were shelled on March 9. Then three people died, including a child, 17 people were injured. One of the photos taken at the site of the shelling shows a pregnant woman lying on a stretcher. This footage was published by many world media. This pregnant woman in the photo did not survive, and neither did her baby.

On March 18, the Russian invaders attacked the barracks of the 79th Separate Airborne Assault Brigade in Mykolaiv. They did not have time to warn about the attack, because it took place from a very close distance from the territory of the Kherson region.

In fact, there are hundreds of such photos and, unfortunately, there may be even more of them. All of them convey the horror, pain and suffering of the Ukrainian people. Behind each of the photos there is a story - sad, tragic, heroic. Ukraine will never forget this war, aggression and terror of the people.
