Ukraine, a once member of the Soviet unified organization called Warsaw Pact, is now being seized by it’s former ally, Russia. It is one of the most tragic events involving militarism since the invasion of Georgia in Europe. Ukraine declared it’s independency when the Soviet Union went down. What I see is, the tension is caused by the deed of Ukraine to be a member of the EU or European Union. Therefore, Moscow would not want this because of their interests in Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered Russian troops to form a military barricade in a part of Ukraine known as Crimea.
Pro Russian Ukrainians raised Russian flags, brought chaos to the country. Kiev is now in deep trouble, facing the second strongest and dominant military force in the world. Meanwhile, Washington cannot make a move because of the tight situation. President Barrack Obama talked to Putin in a telephone call for 90 minutes, but unfortunately, Putin’ didn’t want any negotiations with the US. Maybe if the Republicans were in position, there could be war declared on Russia. Right-wing sectors or Ultra-Nationalists were fighting for Ukraine’s sovereignty.
In fact, they hired Russia’s most wanted man to fight alongside with them. This man fought during the invasion of Georgia. EU cannot make a move because of economic affairs with Russia. Russia supplies almost 70% of Western Europe’s oil needs. This decapitates European Powers to intervene in the said crisis. That is, I think of Putin’s strategy, he knew that EU would not intervene because of their trade matters. My stand in this issue is, I am against Putin’s belligerence. Invasion is an inhumane act.

It is an act if direct imperialism. I conclude that, the only solution in the crisis is Russia’s withdrawal of it’s troops. If US would make or conduct military actions, Russia could divert it’s military efforts to Middle East, disrupting peace talks in Iran and Syria. It could arm hostiles in these two countries. Russia could support North Korea’s hostility to the South. Even China’s military campaign in Asia. Even NATO cannot make an action. This situations, at worst could trigger World War 3.
