Russian troops invaded Kyiv Oblast from Belarusian territory on the first day of the full-scale invasion, 24 February 2023. Failing to capture Kyiv and facing fierce opposition by Ukrainian forces, Russians retreated from three northern oblasts of Ukraine – Kyiv, Chernihiv, and Sumy – after a month of battles claiming to make a “goodwill gesture.” As Ukraine reclaimed the liberated territory, a number of Russian war crimes were exposed, including summary executions, torture, and rape.
