Impacts of Russian invasion of Ukraine

The 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine resulted in an uptick of AN/I reports for related disruption, as well as arbitration enforcement activity in the Eastern Europe sanctions area. A variety of reports and suggestions were filed, regarding POV-pushers, incivility from some new users, and other misguided activity. Since the invasion began only a few days ago, developments are ongoing. The article covering the invasion was selected for In the news on 23 February 2022; it had over 2 million pageviews on 24 February, and again on 25 February. The parent article, Russo-Ukrainian War, also had over a million pageviews on 24 February, dropping slightly the following day. – B, E
