Washington. Tensions between Russia and Western countries (Ukraine, the US, NATO) over Ukraine are at an all-time high. Both sides’ military activity has increased. Meanwhile, Jake Sullivan, US President Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser, stated that Russia could attack Ukraine “at any time” (Russia Ukraine Conflict). He stated that if conflict begins, humanity will be forced to pay a high price. This is the second time the president’s senior adviser has issued a warning. Earlier this month, US officials confirmed that Russia had collected at least 70% of the military equipment it intended to have by the middle of the month.
Its goal, according to US officials, is to give Russian President Vladimir Putin the option of attacking Ukraine. “If a war breaks out, Ukraine will bear a huge human cost, but we believe Russia will pay a strategic price as well,” Sullivan said, referring to those reports. According to the report, the White House has informed lawmakers that Russia could attack Kiev at any time, killing up to 50,000 people.
Biden expels 27 Russian diplomats and rejects the demand that Ukraine be excluded from NATO.
As a conspiracy, he presented the storey of the attack.
According to Sullivan, a diplomatic solution is still possible (Ukraine, Russia, USA Today). In recent days, the administration has issued a warning that Russia intends to invade Ukraine’s territory quickly. Officials from the Biden administration said last week that intelligence inputs suggested the Kremlin was working on an elaborate plot to fabricate a story about a security force attack in Ukraine to give Russia an excuse to intervene militarily in its neighbor.
Russia has no plans to attack.
On the other hand, Russia, on the other hand, has stated that it has no intention of attacking or occupying Ukraine. He has linked the deployment of one lakh soldiers to his own security concerns on the border. In addition, the US and its military alliance have made significant demands on NATO. It was stated in these that Ukraine should not be admitted to NATO and that Western countries should not expand eastward. These demands, however, have been rejected by both the US and NATO. Several meetings between US and Russian officials have also taken place in order to resolve the Russia-Ukraine crisis.
Which side will Germany support?
Even under these conditions, Germany has yet to decide whether or not to take military action against Russia. As a result, the Western media considers Germany to be an untrustworthy ally. On Monday, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz will meet with Vice President Joe Biden in Washington. It is expected that Germany’s silence on the tensions between Russia and Ukraine will now be broken. Olaf could also be sending a larger message, as Germany has been chastised for its complicity in the tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
What exactly is the conflict between Ukraine and Russia?
The point of contention is Ukraine’s desire to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, or NATO. It is opposed by Russia. NATO is a military alliance between the United States of America and Western countries. Russia does not want Ukraine, a neighbouring country, to become a NATO member. This entire conflict has sparked the possibility of a new war in which more than one country will be involved.
Aside from that, Russia has deployed warships in the Black Sea, all of which are armed with lethal missiles. Ukraine is bordered by the Black Sea. There is also Crimea, which was part of Ukraine until 2014. However, it was later occupied by Russia. He also has control of this area at this time.
