It was February 24th when Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation, launching a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, triggering the largest war on European soil since the Yugoslav war and, of course, since World War II.

The iMEdD team monitors international media sources and organisations, recording daily highlights of the Russian invasion of Ukraine to create a chronology of the war.
