You’ll be surprised with a little research

As well as Ukraine being Europe’s poorest country * and its most corrupt **, it also has its highest homicide rate.

Last year’s Ukrainian homicide rate was 6 people for every 100,000.

The U.S. homicide rate was 5.

In the greater Ukraine Donbas region, which has a population of 4 million, 481 people have died in 2021. 

Of which 178 were combatants and a further 303 being civilians. ***

Keep in mind, that the region has been involved in a rebel separatist conflict for the past 7 years.

When we calculate this compared to the 4 million people who live in Donbas.

Note: this is a death rate and not an intentional murder rate, as homicide statistics are referred to.

During 2021, in the City of St. Louis, 196 people were murdered.

This gives them a homicide rate of 82 (per 100,000 inhabitants) 

while, New Orleans is at 40,

Las Vegas is 31

and Chicago is 24

Not being political, just some perspective.
