CRISIS STARTED WITH THAT STEP
The crisis between Russia and Ukraine began when then-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich failed to sign the European Union (EU) Association Agreement.
After this step, demonstrations began in the country on November 21, 2013. After Yanukovich fled the country in February 2014 amid growing demonstrations, pro-Russian separatists declared independence in the eastern cities of Donetsk and Lugansk in the eastern donbas region.
Clashes then broke out between the separatists and the Kiev government, and on March 18, 2014, the region was annexed by Russia.
More than 13,000 people have been killed in the conflict since 2014, according to official figures.
