This is a really excellent, short, summary of Putin’s permanent dirty wars, which have lasted over 22 years now. Good that there is still some honest news in India.

This invasion is one of the biggest in Europe after World War 2. Ukraine however isn’t the first country to be invaded by Russian federation. From Chechnya to Syria, to Ukraine, the Russia of Vladimir Putin has been involved in a string of wars since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. Watch this video to know more.

In August 1999, a then-unknown Vladimir Putin was named prime minister when his predecessor refused to condone a full reinvasion of Chechnya.
