Ukraine-Russia conflict: Russian President Vladimir Putin will soon address the country, amid a war-like situation with Ukraine. Putin is said to have recognized East Ukraine as a separate state. Many important decisions can be made today. At the same time, the situation can be very stressful if identified.
Earlier in the day, Putin said at a meeting of Security Council officials that he was considering recognizing eastern Ukraine. Russia has made every effort to reduce tensions. Efforts were made to maintain a peaceful atmosphere. Putin showed an attitude that we do not have any guarantees from NATO and the United States.
In fact, Russia does not want Ukraine to join NATO because Russia feels that if this happens, NATO troops and bases will stand near its border. Currently tensions between Russia and Ukraine are high. Western nations, including the United States, have expressed concern that Russia could launch an attack on Ukraine at any time.

Ukraine has demanded the immediate convening of the United Nations Security Council. The request was made by the Ukrainian Foreign Minister.

The Russian military says five Ukrainians have been killed in clashes along the border, according to AFP news agency AFP. However, Ukraine has denied any damage to the border.
Crimea annexed in 2014
Let us tell you, in 2014, Russia invaded and occupied the Ukrainian city of Crimea. The struggle continued even after the annexation of Crimea. The separatists declared a separate state in Donetsk and Luhansk, two parts of the Donbass in Ukraine. Donetsk and Luhansk are two different countries. Both countries are part of eastern Ukraine.
At the end of 2021, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky announced his membership of NATO. After this decision, Russia is angry with Ukraine for not wanting to join NATO. With millions of Russian troops stationed on the Ukrainian border over the past few months to put pressure on Ukraine, it is believed that Russia could attack Ukraine at any time.
