100 days of war in Ukraine: The most defining moments in pictures

This selection of photographs shows some of the most crucial moments of the ongoing war in Ukraine 100 days after the conflict began.

From the shock of Russia’s invasion back in February to the latest battle for eastern Ukraine, many of these photos show the extent of the war’s brutality.

They have also played a role in the west’s support for Ukraine as well as the ongoing efforts to hold those responsible for the war’s atrocities accountable.

Since the beginning of the war, 32 journalists were killed in Ukraine, a number that does not include media employees who enlisted in the army to defend Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Amnesty International said in early May that it has documented extensive war crimes by Russian forces in communities around the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, including arbitrary executions, bombings of residences and torture.
