Russian military vehicles crossed the Ukrainian border in several places, including Belarus.
Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy says 137 people have been killed so far, including civilians.
The UN’s refugee agency says about 100,000 Ukrainians have been displaced, with thousands fleeing to nearby European states.
Why Did Russia Invade Ukraine?
Russia opposes the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which includes the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Japan, to mention a few. Because Russia and China are not members of NATO, they are allies.
Ukraine, which shares a border with Russia, agreed not to join NATO upon gaining independence from Russia because joining NATO would mean the NATO military, which is made up of NATO member countries, would have a base in Ukraine, which is near to Russia.
China is backing Russia, and don’t forget that the two countries are partners. China has the world’s greatest population, whereas Russia has the world’s largest land area.
Russia is not afraid of NATO because they understand that if external powers such as the United States, France, Germany, and other NATO allies strike Russia’s military in support of Ukraine, the world will descend into chaos.
Russia claims they are battle-ready and has the military might to confront any country or countries. Russia has North Korea and Iran on its side in addition to China.
So the question is,
If You Were Ukraine President What Would You Do At This Point? (Surrender or Keep Fighting With Russia?)
