Russia’s war in Ukraine just entered its fourth week.

Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded his ex-Soviet neighbor on Feb. 24, an unprovoked act that has led to carnage across the country. The war has displaced more than 3 million Ukrainians, mostly women and children.

As desperate Ukrainians flee their homes to neighboring NATO member countries Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania Russian forces pummel the cities of Kyiv, Kharkiv, Lviv and Mariupol with missiles and artillery.

Since the Kremlin’s Feb. 24. invasion, more than 700 people have died, according to a tally provided by WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Thursday. At least 52 children have died, he said.

Here is a look at some of the faces and lives affected by Russia’s horrific war.
