Western leaders fear Russian invasion of Ukraine | DW News

For nearly eight years now, Ukrainian forces have been fighting a Russian-backed separatist insurgency in the east of the country. The conflict has claimed some 14,000 lives.
With tens of thousands of Russian troops now massing on the border, many in Ukraine fear an imminent invasion.

Russian diplomats are meeting with other delegates in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe today, as efforts continue to de-escalate tensions over Ukraine. Talks between Russian and NATO officials ended on Wednesday without a breakthrough. EU foreign and defence ministers are also gathering today in the French city of Brest to discuss the crisis.

  1. If y'all been paying attention to the situation in Ukraine since day one, the former President of Ukraine is pro Russia. The EU didn't want to see a new Soviet Union be created. The Ukraine military removed him and any high ranking military officers who is pro Russia. The people in Crimea are pro Russia or desedenc of native Russia.

  2. What more fearsome and lethal than Russian military hardwares are the lies and misinformation peddled by DW and its brotherhood of Western media on a 21 st century of * colonisation" of mind .

  3. Putin is a bloodthirsty tyrant that needs to be put down along with all of his supporters. I hope NATO along with all of Europe grows some balls and get to work in helping Ukraine.

  4. Despite my moniker Blackseabrew I am an American. All I see is an incompetent Biden administration thinking that a conflict with Russia can be used to cover up their COVID stupidity and distract from their disastrous ratings. It doesn't help to have a bunch of neoconservatives on the other side of the aisle that have never seen a war they don't like. In addition there are decent Republicans whose support for the military is so strong they can't allow themselves to have a critical thought that poking the bear might not be a good idea. I've spent some time in Ukraine and I like the country and the people. I know enough to know the USA should NOT be in this political entanglement looking soon to be a military entanglement. 15,000 civilians have already paid with their lives. But USA politicians don't care one bit.

  5. My thinking on how NATO should react (I'm not a military expert I'm some guy on the internet so don't take this seriously it's just my thoughs)

    1. Blockade Russia entirely and cut off any and all access to the rest of the world
    2. Send troops to Ukraine for defensive purposes
    3. If Russia continues their offensive in Ukraine, then go on the counter-offensive and enter Russia itself.
    4. Whatever happens then

  6. If you want support ukrain than send billions of cash and dont expect to get it back only keep sending and sending!
    Russia did ask usa to promise not to expand and usa can't give that promise.
    Usa and nato get closer to Russia and not Rusdia get closer to them.
    Ukrain and Baltic countries been sheeting for very long time on Russia door step and maybe now time to pay back from Russia?
