Tensions between Russia and Ukraine escalated after Putin on Monday recognized separate regions of Ukraine – Donetsk and Luhansk – as independent entities, adding to the ongoing tension between the two countries. Ukraine gained independence in 1991 after the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
Putin said on Thursday morning that a special military operation was being launched “to protect” the people in the Donbass region. He also warned other countries that any attempt to interfere with Russian action would have “consequences”.
