On Saturday also missiles were fired continuously on Kyiv. One of these missiles passed between the 16th and 21st floors of a residential multi-storey building on the outskirts of Kyiv and caught fire on two floors of the building. At least six civilians were seriously injured in the attack while 80 were rescued. Another missile was fired at a dam supplying water to Kyiv but was shot down by Ukraine in the air.
The country's infrastructure minister said that if this missile had hit the target, the suburbs of Kyiv would have been flooded. At the same time, Russia's defense spokesman Igor Konashenkov again claimed that Russian missiles are being fired only targeting military bases in Ukraine. In such a situation, it is important to know what is the root of this controversy? Why have these provinces, which were once friends during the Soviet Union, become enemies of each other after becoming two countries? Ukraine is bordered by Europe to the west and Russia to the east. Until 1991, Ukraine was part of the erstwhile Soviet Union.Tensions between Russia and Ukraine began in November 2013 when Viktor Yanukovich, the then President of Ukraine, began protesting in Kyiv. While he had the support of Russia.
Yanukovich had to flee the country in February 2014 due to protests by US-UK backed protesters. Angered by this, Russia annexed Crimea in southern Ukraine. After this he supported the separatists there. These separatists occupied large parts of eastern Ukraine. Since 2014, pro-Russian separatists and Ukrainian forces have been fighting in the Donbass province.Even before this, when Ukraine broke away from the Soviet Union in 1991, there were many conflicts between the two countries over Crimea.After 2014, Western countries took the initiative to prevent the constant tension and conflict in Russia and Ukraine and to establish peace. France and Germany signed a peace and ceasefire agreement between the two in 2015 in Minsk, the capital of Belarus.
Recently Ukraine began to build close and friendship with NATO. Ukraine has good relations with NATO. NATO i.e. 'North Atlantic Treaty Organization was created in 1949 to deal with the then Soviet Union. Ukraine's close proximity to NATO began to exasperate Russia.30 countries of the world, including the United States and Britain, are members of NATO. If a country attacks a third country, then all the member countries of NATO unite and fight it. Russia wants NATO not to expand itself. President Putin was putting pressure on Ukraine and Western countries regarding this demand.
After all, Russia attacked Ukraine on Thursday, regardless of the sanctions of America and other countries. So far, NATO, the US and no other country have declared to join the war in support of Ukraine. They are indirectly helping Ukraine, so it is difficult to say what turn this war will take. If the countries of Europe or America take any military action against Russia, then there can be trouble for the whole world.The war between Ukraine and Russia has been going on for the last seven days.
The Russian attack is now reported to be intensifying. The Russian soldier is reported to be near the capital Kyiv. At the same time, President Volodymyr Zelensky has also handed over weapons to ordinary citizens to fight Russia. Meanwhile, a man in Ukraine's capital, Kyiv, said the Russian military was not the only threat to Ukrainian citizens.In a video made in Kyiv on 28 February, a writer named Gonzalo Lira claimed that Ukraine has been in Ukraine since President Zelensky's regime decided to arm Ukrainians against Russia. Criminals have access to a stockpile of military-grade weapons. "In the past few days after the Zelensky regime handed over weapons, many criminals have access to military-grade weapons," he said in a video posted on Twitter. And because of this dacoity, rape and all kinds of destruction are happening there.
