Russo-Ukrainian War The Russo-Ukrainian war began on February 24 when Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was conducting a “special military operation” in the region. The Nigerian government had also begun airlifting out the country’s citizens stranded in Ukraine. The evacuation followed a series of social media campaigns by many people and organizations, including PREMIUM TIMES. This newspaper had launched a series of dialogue sessions to advance talks on the issues of safety and evacuation of stranded Nigerians, with the participation of relevant government officials. The government was later said to have approved $8.5 million for the evacuation of some 5,000 stranded Nigerians. Since then, the United Nations said more than a million people have fled Ukraine and warned that “at this rate” the exodus could become “the biggest refugee crisis of this century.” Qosim Suleiman is a reporter for Premium Times in association with Report for the World, connecting local newsrooms with talented emerging journalists to report on hidden topics around the world.
