These Ukraine Images Show the Dark Reality of a War-Torn Country

( – The Russian offensive against Ukraine is still ongoing, and it’s not getting any better. While it’s difficult to understand the true devastation Russia has caused the smaller European country, a picture is worth a thousand words. Recent images depict just how bad the situation has become for the Ukrainian people.

Russian forces have been shelling the Ukrainian city of Chernihiv for weeks, dating back to the middle of March. According to the Washington Post, the Pentagon claims Russian forces have left the area, but the havoc their operation wreaked on the region remains, leaving the community scarred. One example of the impact of Russia’s aggression is the Chernihiv Stadium, formerly known as the Yuri Gagarin Stadium, named after the first man to enter space.

The local soccer team that called the stadium their home, FC Desna Chernihiv, posted photos to Facebook, depicting the utter destruction of their Olympic training center. They detailed how Ukraine would rebuild everything Russia destroyed, declaring every Russian soldier would eventually be driven from their homeland and they would once again have peace.

The United Nations updated the number of people who have fallen victim to Russia’s aggression. The UN reported on April 11, 2022 that the death toll had climbed to 1,842 among civilians alone, with another 2,493 injured, many being children. These are the harsh realities of war, an unnecessary one at that.
