Friday marked 100 days since Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine, killing more than 4,000 civilians, forcing more than 5 million people to flee and destroying entire towns and cities.

The war has also fueled a global food crisis, especially affecting Africa and developing countries.

Russian Putin’s war was quickly responded with unprecedented sanctions from the West and it still continues. NATO has also since expanded with membership applications from Sweden and Finland, despite Russia’s warnings against the moves.

World leaders used the 100-day mark to praise Ukraine's resistance. Georgian President Salome Zourabichvili, whose country was also invaded by Russia in 2008, also commented on the first hundred days of war.

“100 days since Russia launched its unjustified aggression against Ukraine.

100 days that Ukraine has shown that it can defeat a power once perceived as invincible.

100 days that Europe and the civilized world have shown unity in the face of challenge,” President Zourabichvili wrote on Twitter.
