Ukraine 1 year later
This Friday marks one year since Russian President Vladimir Putin launched what he called a "special military operation" in neighboring Ukraine. The rest of the world saw it for what it was, an unprovoked invasion. While some predicted the conflict would be over in a matter of days, the determination of the Ukranian people proved them wrong. What followed was a full-scale war and a humanitarian crisis that continues to this day.
Eyewitness News anchor Sandra Bookman spoke to a member of Unicef, who has been on the ground in Ukraine since the start of the conflict. He talked about how Ukrainian children are dealing with the effects of war and what all Ukrainians currently need.
