Russia Retreat Reveals Destruction as Ukraine Asks For Help

The retreating of Russian troops from the northern Ukrainian city, Kyiv, left it in ruin and disaster after the invasion started on Feb. 24, 2022.

They left nothing but crushed buildings, streets littered with cars and residents in dire need of food and other necessities that could help them in these troubling times.

Now dozens of Ukrainian citizens line up to receive bread, diapers and medicines from vans parked outside a shattered school now serving as an aid-distribution center in Chernihiv, which Russian forces tried to use force to surrender to the south to capture the capital before retreating.

The city’s streets are lined with shelled home and apartment buildings with no roofs or walls.

While Russia invaded Ukraine this caused them to go into a war forcing more than four million people to leave Ukraine, displacing millions within the country and sending shock waves all throughout Europe and beyond.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Dmytro Kuleba, warned Thursday that despite Russia’s pullback, the country remains vulnerable, and pleaded NATO for more weapons for the up and coming offensive in the east.
