Seeing the growing tension, the United States has ordered its 8500 troops to be on standby. Isabel Saugins, a senior researcher at the Henry Jackson Society of the United States, says any potential conflict in Eastern Europe will not be limited to its borders. This crisis has the potential to spread to every corner of the globe. ” Chinese President Xi Jinping has said he will “monitor” the Ukraine crisis.

‘Russia threat threatens immaturity’
He said Russia has a history of relations with Latin American countries. No one can stop Russia from entering Africa. Recently, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister warned that Russia could send troops to Latin America.

Why is Putin threatening to attack Ukraine?
The reason for the increase in military presence on the border with Ukraine is Putin’s sense of impunity. Putin knows Western political leaders who uphold Russian interests and alliances with Russian companies after leaving office. Western nations have largely imposed code sanctions against Russia’s interference in the 2020 U.S. presidential election and cyber attacks on companies and about 18,000 people working in the U.S. government.
Putin has backed Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko to quell protests in the capital, Minsk. In many cases, Putin has observed that some key Western political leaders have allied themselves with Russia. These alliances could prevent Western nations from forming a united front against Putin. For example, Gerhard Schrder, the former president of Germany, argued for strategic cooperation between Europe and Russia during his tenure. He then became chairman of the Russian oil company Rosneft in 2017.
