It’s three months since Russian President Vladimir Putin launched the ‘special military operation’ to invade Ukraine.
Three months into Russia’s so-called “special military operation” in Ukraine, the invasion appears to be turning into a drawn-out war.
Thousands have been killed, millions are homeless and many communities are in ruins.
Leaders from both sides say they’re far from any talk of a ceasefire.
Ukraine’s president wants even tougher Western sanctions to send a message to the Kremlin that ‘brute force’ will not prevail.
But Russia says its economy is weathering the storm from the sanctions.
Is the continued conflict complicating efforts to find a diplomatic solution?
