Ukraine was one of the member states of the Soviet Union. Russia still considers Ukraine as one of its members, along with its linguistic and cultural identity and consensus with Russia. But the people of that country greatly wanted to identify themselves with other European countries.

Inspired by free trade, a capitalist economy, extreme democratic rights, Western culture of consumption and entertainment, Ukraine broke free from the Soviet Union's old way of life and aspired to an independent life. The idea of why we should continue to live in the grip of Russia, even after the very word 'union' has been diluted and rendered meaningless, is deeply ingrained in the minds of the Ukrainian people. Therefore, they do not want to live in the grip of Russia. Simply they did not accept it. Ukraine is a developing country economically. Ukraine ranks 75th in the world in human resource development. Despite its high level of poverty and corruption, it is a major exporter of agricultural commodities due to its rich agricultural lands.

There is a single regime led by the Chancellor. The center of power in Ukraine consists of three organs: the judiciary, the state administration, and the legislature. Russian President Vladimir Putin has set a trap with the power frenzy to break this influence.

Vladimir Putin has been Russia's president, prime minister, and president for the past 22 years. People are tired of Putin's rule. The economic growth that was there in the early days is no more. The economy is faltering and the track is changing. Poverty and unemployment are on the rise. Corruption in the Russian state, the tendency to show favoritism and capitalist domination are rampant. Putin crushes the opposition and opposition leaders for different reasons in order to keep himself in power. Putin has accused the West of spewing words of desire to fulfill the democratic aspirations of the people and has been making every effort to keep the country in check as under the old communist regime.

The availability of natural gas and crude oil in Russia has brought economic prosperity to the state. As an added strength, the military strength of the then Soviet Union is still intact. Therefore, with these, Vladimir Putin seeks to prove that Russia is also a superpower. As a new superpower and an economically developed country, China has a close friendship with Russia. In doing so, China is counting on reducing US dominance. China seeks to oust the United States from Europe and Central Asia. Russia and China have the same policy, that is, the enemy is the enemy's friend. It is on this basis that Russia and China have joined hands.

That is why Putin wants to poke the United States. Withdrawing from Afghanistan, the United States is focusing its full attention on reviving it’s industrial sector that has sunk into the abyss. Therefore, Russia is directly interfering in the affairs of Ukraine with the aim of threatening European countries at this weak moment. This is to show the military strength of Russia and to take over the European market. So, overall we can see this also as a trade war.

There is one more important message than that. The leaders of the two great nations have been compelled to present themselves as influential leaders so that their political future is not doomed. They want to magnify the Ukraine problem and thereby attract the world's attention.

The situation is so dire that the Ukraine-Russia war will escalate into a major war, bigger than the first two world wars. This is because both Ukraine and Russia have nuclear weapons. There are fears that those countries could use nuclear weapons if the war intensifies. The Ukrainian capital, Kiev, has been hit by a series of bombings. A state of emergency has been declared in Ukraine and all 18- to 60-year-olds have been ordered to co-operate in military operations. International crude oil prices have risen sharply since the attack began. Ukraine continued to express its interest in the NATO system. This was supported by countries including the United States and Britain. However, Russia strongly opposed this. That issue is the root cause of this war.

Russia's fierce opposition to NATO is the root cause of the war. NATO's members include the United States, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway and Portugal. Russia says Ukraine should not join these countries. Russia reckons that such a combination would pose a threat to Russia's security. This is the beginning of the war,

“We have been deserted in this war" said Ukrainian President Velodimir Selensky. Civilians from the Japanese capital Tokyo to New York in the United States have been protesting against the Russian invasion. Along with them the Russian people are also engaged in this protest. Russian President Vladimir Putin has described the military action against Ukraine was taken because of internal security and a long-standing problem with NATO.

Neighbors, meanwhile, have denounced Putin's move to allow people in eastern Ukraine to seek refuge in neighboring countries overnight. We can feel that this move is improper as the native people have jumped into the fray against this move by the Russian President. This can be seen as a unilateral move and an act of President Putin fulfilling his own will.

After World War II, power struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union became significant in the history as the Cold War. The superpowers play games that create many nations, many regimes, and suddenly overthrow them. That is why at one time the United States had to look with intimidation at the spy agency of the Soviet Union.

In 1991, the Soviet Union disintegrated. Rather than Russia being a separate nation, 16 other factions have become separate nations. This is the story of the tears of a broken nation. Ukraine is the country born of such tears. The United States has engaged in various diplomatic activities, believing that Russia should never renew such demarcated border lines.

Based on this, the European powers Britain, France and Germany came up with similar ideas. As a result, the small, tiny nations that broke away from the Soviet Union began to sway. The seed for the war that was sown then is the truth that has now created war.
