Eastern Europe is on red alert before the Kremlin movements and its claims with Ukraine. Since the annexation of the Crimean Peninsula in 2014, Russia’s aspirations with its Ukrainian neighbors have not stopped growing, and there are already fears that a new large-scale warlike conflict in Europe will begin in the coming weeks, which it is feared could be the greatest since the Balkan War.
United States President Joe Biden it has been cited with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, to discuss various issues of interest, including Ukraine. It is the second meeting between the two leaders since they held on June 16 in Geneva, and they do so a few days after a meeting held by their respective secretaries of state, Antony Blinken and Sergei Lavrov.
Far from finding a solution, it is feared that the negotiation will continue its course or stagnate, since Putin does not resign to its presence on the border and has continued to increase the number of units present there, while Ukraine remains vigilant, waiting to know whether or not the rumors that warn of an imminent attack are true.
The tension between Ukraine and Russia is maximum and the Armies of both countries are already preparing for a possible conflict on the border. The Ukrainians fear another military offensive and ask for help from their allies, the United States, which has already announced that it is going to intervene and has called on Putin to try to reduce tension in the area.
Russia blames NATO for the current situation
From Russia, no responsibility is assumed, and they blame NATO for the diplomatic tension in Eastern Europe. Vladimir Putin blames the deployment of the allied forces and ensures that all this it was provocated Because of this circumstance: “Why was it necessary to expand NATO towards our borders? Who can answer this question? We were almost allies.”
Meanwhile, the president of the United States, Joe Biden, warns to Russia that it is prepared to defend Ukraine in the event of a Russian offensive, and that it will not allow annexation as occurred in 2014 with Crimea, where to this day, a war between Ukrainians and Russians continues to be waged for gain full control of the region.
The president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, already warned long ago that he had information about an alleged coup to overthrow him on December 1, with Russia implicated in said plot. After that date has expired, it will be necessary to see in the coming weeks if the rumors pointing to the invasion of Ukraine by Russia in January 2022 are true.
