Russia has launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Airstrikes hit several cities in the country and people began fleeing those areas. Long lines of cars streamed out of the capital Kyiv. President Joe Biden called it an "unprovoked attack" and the US has imposed initial sanctions on Russia, including ones targeting large financial institutions.
