 焦點新聞 :

Ukraine has long wished to join the European Union. However, Russia fears that the United States and other Western countries would use this as an opportunity to store nuclear arms in Ukraine—a direct threat to Russia.

Ever since the previous pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych was recalled in 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin has controlled the Ukrainian territory of Crimea and also supported Ukrainian separatists in its eastern regions, under the false pretense that the Ukrainian government is extremist Nazis.

The situation escalated on February 24, 2022, when Putin ordered a “special military operation” and proceeded to invade Ukraine, instructing troops to attack military bases and airfields in the country. Since then, Ukrainian forces, along with civilian volunteers, have continued to clash with Russian forces on land, air, and sea.

A peace talk was finally scheduled between Russian and Ukrainian officials in Belarus. The meeting, however, was not very successful. Ukraine called for an immediate ceasefire and withdrawal of Russian troops, but Russian officials refused. Both sides agreed on further negotiations in the days to come, but as of early March, the war in Ukraine continued to drag on.
