On the morning of February 24, 2022 at 5 AM local time, Russia invaded Ukraine.
Here’s a look at the two countries, by numbers:
Last year, Ukraine spent $4.5 billion on defense, while Russia spent $45 billion.
Ukraine has just 196,000 active duty personnel, while Russia has over 900,000.
Russia has 10x the number of aircrafts: 128 to 1,391.
Ukraine has 3,309 armored vehicles, while Russia has 15,857.
But, while the odds are stacked against them, only Ukraine is fighting for its home.
