Russia- Ukraine  War

Head of Russia

  • President -Vladimir Putin
  • Prime Minister-Mikhail Vladimirovich Mishustin

Head of Ukraine

  • President –Volodymyr Zelenskyy
  • Prime Minister -Denys Shmyhal

Cause– Pro-Russian forces control the eastern Donbas

NATO’s eastward expansion.

The Russo-Ukrainian War is an ongoing war between Russia (together with pro-Russian separatist forces) and Ukraine since 2014.

Before Russia and Ukraine were both members of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), which consisted of 15 republics.

Since the invasion of Crimea in 2014, Ukraine has been living in fear of war with Russia for nearly eight years. Russia and Ukraine have been at odds for a long time, with Russia claiming Ukraine as a part of its country and opposing Ukraine’s developing ties to the West. Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to recapture the former Soviet Union Republic.

The first eight years of the conflict included the Russian annexation of Crimea (2014) and the war in Donbas  separate between Ukraine and Russian. Russian military build-up on the Russia–Ukraine border from late 2021.

Now The North Atlantic Treaty Organization(NATO) accused Russia of planning an invasion, which it denied. Russian President Vladimir Putin criticized the enlargement of NATO as a threat to his country and demanded Ukraine be barred from ever joining the military alliance.

On 21 February 2022, Russia officially recognised the two self-proclaimed separatist states in the Donbas, and openly sent troops into the territories. Russia began its invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022.
