According to the article “tensions rising between Russia and Ukraine” Russia and Ukraine are neighboring countries with a turbulent history. They are currently experiencing their highest level of stress in years. The Ukrainian administration has attempted to form ties with Western states and European economic systems. However, under Vladimir Putin’s leadership, Russia has attempted to retain ties with Ukraine. The Russian military has seized Donbas, a territory of southeastern Ukraine bordering Russia, since 2014. Russia also occupied Crimea, a Ukrainian peninsula, in 2014, and has gathered tens of thousands of troops at its naval base there. The US has also taken more direct military strikes. On Friday, January 21, 2022, it dispatched a cargo of munitions to Ukraine. The US military has already transferred guided missile systems and other military weapons to Ukraine in October 2021.

I am glad that the United States is taking measures to support Ukraine. I don’t blame Ukraine for wanting to integrate into the western world. This is all very overwhelming and I (naively) hope that such conflict comes to an end sooner or later.

What do you think about all of this?
