Russian war against Ukraine: Present situation (Ukrainian Embassy in Tunisia)


  • On February 24, 2022, Russian troops invaded Ukraine simultaneously from 9 different directions in the north, east, and south. In total, at least 220,000 Russian troops were involved in the invasion. Russia has become the first country to wage a full-scale aggressive war in Europe in the 21st century. Putin’s goal is not some territories, but genocide, the destruction of Ukrainian statehood.
  • Over these two years, Ukraine has achieved a number of significant victories: the expulsion of the occupiers from the north, a counter-offensive in Kharkiv region, the liberation of Kherson. In general, the defence forces of Ukraine liberated more than 50% of the territory occupied after February 24, 2022.
  • After two years of the full-scale war with Russia, the Ukrainian army is the most experienced in Europe, and the only one that has experience of war with the Russian Armed Forces.
  • Ukraine is grateful to the international coalition, which has been making a crucial contribution to supporting Ukrainian combat capability for two years. This war will end either with the defeat of Putinism or the collapse of the existing system of international relations and security. There is no middle ground.


  • On February 18, the Defence Forces completed the withdrawal from Avdiivka. The defence of Avdiivka from the Russian invaders lasted almost 10 years. Ukraine will return and rebuild this city.
  • Russia seized Avdiivka at the cost of considerable losses in equipment and people. In the 4 months of the active phase of the fighting, more than 47,000 invaders, 364 tanks, 5 aircraft, and other Russian matériel were destroyed.
  • Putin ordered his troops to seize Avdiivka to raise his rating. However, the terms of the “victory” determined by the dictator were repeatedly postponed due to the resilience of the Ukrainian defenders. Control over the ruins of Avdiivka will not give Russia any strategic advantages.



  • On February 16, Ukraine signed security agreements with Germany and France.
  • The signing of a number of bilateral security agreements by Ukraine takes place within the framework of the G7 Vilnius Declaration. The first such agreement was signed with the United Kingdom on January 12, 2024.
  • Security agreements are valid until the time of Ukraine’s accession to NATO. The signing of security agreements with Denmark and the Netherlands is expected.
