Russia-Ukraine War: The Russia-Ukraine War is now moving towards the Third World War. Russia has threatened those coming between itself and Ukraine, while America has also said with a stern warning that the result will be very bad.
Russia will have to pay the price. Britain and other countries are also standing against Russia. This time NATO is believed to be the reason behind the war between Russia and Ukraine.
NATO means North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which was started in the year 1949. Ukraine wants to join NATO but Russia does not. It is important to know that what is the root of this controversy? Why have these provinces, which were once friends during the Soviet Union, become enemies of each other after becoming two countries?
Ukraine is bordered by Europe to the west and Russia to the east. Until 1991, Ukraine was part of the erstwhile Soviet Union (USSR). Even after the separation, Russia’s influence in Ukraine was visible to a large extent.
The government of Ukraine also worked on the orders of the Russian government. However, the deteriorating economy, rising inflation, and rule over Ukrainians, a majority of the minority Russian-speaking people, fueled the rebellion.
