Death Numbers Increase in Russia-Ukraine

Written by Doug Rush

Since the start of the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, the casualty rate has began and has only gone up.

First, it was at 300 civilians. Unfortunately, that number has increased with Russia not looking to back away anytime soon.

It’s one thing if it’s military taking out another countries military; that’s the results of a war.

But Russia killing innocent people who had nothing to do with this conflict is a shame. And why nobody is supporting Russia as they continue these attacks.

It’s also why several countries have issued sanctions against Russia and President Vladimir Putin.

Hopefully, the civilian casualties are kept at a minimum going forward, but it doesn’t look like it will be anytime soon.
