Atrocities against civilians. Hundreds of casualties, with the toll rising. Millions of refugees. Thriving cities besieged and reduced to rubble.

These horrors of war go on for Ukrainians, but they have also put up an unexpectedly fierce resistance to the weeks-long Russian invasion. Joined by civilians who have picked up arms, Ukrainian forces have held on to Kyiv, the capital, and forced the Russian military to change its strategy, shifting its attention to the east.

But even with some of the victories came unimaginable terror. Retreating Russian troops left a trail of bodies in the northwestern suburbs of Kyiv. In the town of Bucha, evidence unearthed by local officials, residents, and journalists suggested the Russians had killed civilians recklessly and sometimes sadistically, in part out of revenge.

The battle is now converging on the eastern region, which is familiar ground for Russian forces because they invaded the area in 2014. The massing of troops there has led to yet another round of evacuations, as thousands fled the region in anticipation of an escalation in fighting.

Photographers with the New York Times throughout Ukraine have been chronicling the ordeal of war. These photos are from the first 10 weeks of the war.
