However, the Kiev military has provided fierce resistance with the help of various advanced Western weapons.
Behind the war between Russia and Ukraine, there are many important figures involved.
Here are some important Ukrainian figures involved in the war against the Russian invasion:
1. President Volodymyr Zelensky
Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelensky is a politician, comedian and film director who has served as President of Ukraine since 2019.
Since the war broke out, Zelensky has tried to hold peace talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but they have never materialized.
He has promised to end the conflict between the two countries as part of his campaign for the presidency.
Instead of the conflict ending, a major war actually occurred in the era of the Zelensky government.
