One year into the Ukraine War, News Decoder looks back at a conflict that seemed to unfold like the five stages of grief.

When Russian troops amassed at the Ukraine border, the Western world was in denial. Then came anger when it appeared that Russia was, in fact, invading Ukraine. Bargaining came next once the United States and Europe realized that escalation could involve nuclear weapons.

The fourth stage, of course, was depression once countries saw that this conflict might continue for years. Finally there is acceptance, with U.S. President Joe Biden taking a secret train to Kiev to confirm that nation’s continual support of Ukraine.

To help you decode how we got from the invasion to where we are now, we compiled a range of articles from our correspondents about the Ukraine War.

Tomorrow, News Decoder correspondent Daniel Warner looks to the fall of the Berlin Wall and its aftermath to see that perhaps the invasion wasn’t so surprising after all.

Ukrainians united to protect their sovereignty.

Russia responds to the West’s support of Ukraine.

Refugees find havens outside Ukraine.

The war permeates beyond Ukraine’s borders.

Three questions to consider:

  1. Why were so many people and governments surprised when Russian troops crossed the border into Ukraine?
  2. Why can’t anyone seem to see an end to the conflict over Ukraine?
  3. What happened to people who have left Ukraine because it was so dangerous to stay there?
