Russia might want war with the U.S by Erika

Russia might want war with the U.S

In the article, “Does Russia want War?” I learned that In late January 100,000 Russian troops were massed on Russias border with Ukraine, as tanks and military helicopters swarmed in behind them. I also learned that Biden said that if Putin invaded Ukraine there would be consequences for Russia. This horrible situation started because Putin wants to invade Ukraine. The U.S and Russia have a long history of tension between each other. Putin appears eager to recapture some of the glory of the Soviet Union, whose 15republics, including Ukraine, became independent nations in 1991 (see map, above). Russia was left with 23 percent less land and half the population of the Soviet Union.

I think this is horrible for the U.S because there might be war if Putin invades Ukraine. I don’t think this is a good idea because many people will be affected by this decision. The people that will be affected are not only the people of the U.S but also the people of Russia.

What do you think should be done?
