A week ago Ukraine was just a peaceful European country like many others, although with a very menacing neighbour, no one thought that actual warfare was possible in the very middle of Europe, after all the wars humanity has been through!

Nevertheless, it happened, and on 24th February Russian military forces crossed the border of Ukraine and started attacking its various regions with heavy machinery. Despite everyone’s shock, many countries and organizations reacted at the speed of light, sending help, medicine, food, and clothes to Ukraine!

The warfare happening on the territory of Ukraine right now is horrendous, but the world has united in a beautiful and startling way, reaching out to those in need. Here’s what you should know.

EU is Expecting up to 7 Million Refugees

If the war in Ukraine continues at this rate, the European Union is expecting the number of refugees to rise significantly. The EU is taking measures to improve the procedure of getting into the countries, offering an easy border crossing with up to 3 years of stay for each refugee.

Ukrainians will also need urgent humanitarian help, that’s why the European Commission has already mobilized 90 million euros on humanitarian aid only.

The EU is urging all countries to keep their  borders open, receiving as many refugees from Ukraine as they can.

Anonymous Declares a War Against Russia

Anonymous, a famous hacking group, joined their forces  with Ukrainian hackers and took part in the cyberwar that’s going on in Ukraine, declaring its very own war against the Russian government.

Usually, such groups don’t make loud announcements like that, but this time they came out of the shadows, making a public statement on  Twitter for millions of users to see. The group has started a number of DDos attacks, crippling  Russian broadcasters and various government platforms.

Ukraine was attempting  to enroll their own underground hacking community to help fight on the cyber front, and with Anonymous on board, it seems that the Ukrainian government will be well protected from the majority of cybersecurity attacks. Although, local experts are afraid there’s a new strain of digital virus on the loose.
