Why is Russia Invading Ukraine?

WHY IS RUSSIA INVADING UKRAINE

Russia started a war with the invasion of Ukraine. Why is Russia Invading Ukraine? It is getting near Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine. On Putin’s orders, the Russian army is breaching the country from Belarus (north), south, and east. These are weak allies of Ukraine and strong supporters of Russia.

Why Shattered European Peace

Putin is blamed for shattered European peace. World War 3 was considered to be a cyber-attack of superpower countries. But a Russian night invasion of Ukraine is giving us vibes that the end of the world is near.

On 24 February, the Russian army attacked Ukraine’s military headquarters, provoking a mass migration of refugees. Putin rejects the use of the term invasion and is giving irrational behavior towards World War III.

Now the question arises: why is Russia invading Ukraine? Could Russia take over Europe? Putin’s primary purpose is to make Ukraine accessible to Nazis.

According to him, Nazification has increased in Ukraine areas since World War II. Nazi’s action causes the loss of many Russian soldiers in the Second World War

Russia Present Control

Russia is controlling many parts of Ukraine, including Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, Mariupol, and Crimea. It is approaching near Kyiv. Russia does not tolerate Ukraine’s entrance into the European Union and military association with NATO.

President Putin has often indicted Ukraine for supporting the rebels. In 2014, Russia detained the southern region of Crimea and stimulated an insurgence in the east which caused the loss of 14 000 lives. The fire of revenge did not end, and Russia started to position a large number of soldiers near Ukraine’s border. In late 2021, it denied continuously that it wouldn’t attack.

Russia wants to take control of Ukraine’s big cities. President Zelensky said that he and his family’s lives are in danger. Putin’s main intention is to triumph over Ukraine and make it free from the domination of the Nazis.

 Russia’s Primary Intention of Invasion

Most Ukrainians consider this intention false. No one knows the primary purpose of invasion. Putin denies looking for the conquering of Ukraine and nullifies an indictment of the UK. He wants to mount a pro-Kremlin mannequin. Putin wants Ukraine to be free from the NATO alliance.

He further added that communist Russia founded Modern Ukraine and is now under Western control. Which is unbearable to Putin. According to the intelligence agency, Putin wants Ukraine to be divided into two parts. That is why he started the attack from the Eastern and Northern parts and considered them Russian territory.

Putin has not forgotten the downfall of the Soviet Union and the sacrifice of Russian soldiers, and so he is not in favor of NATO enlargement in the east. Ukraine is fighting back with its weapons, artillery, and every possible means to secure its rebel regions.

Russian troops are trolling in Ukraine with hundreds of tanks. So, destroying cities’ infrastructure through bombardment. Hospitals are full of injured civilians. People are forced to take shelter in the safest places. Many international and national students are migrating to Western parts (e.g., Poland), and at this sensitive time, the whole world is cooperating with Ukraine. But still, the invasion continues.

Aftermaths of Invasion

War is dangerous for the whole continent. Russia is about to turn this attack into a nuclear war. It is warning the supporters of Ukrainians that “consequences will be grim.” Many European leaders gave different reviews. Emmanuel Macron (France) considered this invasion a turning point in Europe’s history.

At the same time, Olaf Scholz (Germany) said that Putin wanted to prove that he was the only Superpower that existed and no one matched its Russian empire. The effects of invasion on the West are revealing. NATO is sending more troops to Ukraine’s border to fight back against Russia. The alliance has clarified that Ukraine will not send its army. And allied members will provide field hospitals and weapons. NATO is positioning thousands of soldiers in Poland and the Baltic states in reaction to the invasion.

The aftermaths of the invasion are destructive for Russia as developed countries are aiming at Russia’s financial institutes and economy. Russian airlines are shut off in the UK and Canada. Germany has stopped the gas pipeline project between European countries and Russia.

The Champions League will not be hosted in St Petersburg, Russia. Russian banks are cut off from the International Swift Remittance system. YouTube also announced that it will ban Russian channels temporarily.

 NATO enlargement

NATO has an open-ended policy. It welcomes the newest members, whereas old members need support. Since 1997, NATO has expanded as many countries joined it, most of them lie in the west of Ukraine, like North Macedonia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Montenegro, and Slovakia.

All these countries are standing with Ukraine and are providing supplies of weapons and providing shelter to refugees during this pandemic time. More than half of the countries of Europe are members of NATO. Russia needs help to fight alone to prove its right to rule Europe.

CONCLUSION

Both countries negotiated on 1st March to make a peaceful settlement. It find a diplomatic solution to the war through negotiation in Belarus. Still, Russia will not retreat an inch and is not ready to lay down its arms. Russia’s main idea is to conquer the capital city and fulfill its long-planned plot.

The threat remains that if the world end is near, then it will be in the form of Russia’s nuclear attack on Ukraine that will result in the loss of uncountable lives, and the world is not ready for this. Giving shelter to refugees is not an easy job.

A massive military convoy emerges in Kyiv. People are making petrol bombs in their defense. The crisis needs to be resolved. United Nations must act now and force Putin to withdraw all its troops from Ukraine. If Russia succeeds, World War III will start and possibly change the world’s map.
