Russia/ukraine Conflicts

This war could have been avoided if the united states had prevailed in Ukraine.

The Bolshevik revolution brought Russia from a backward nation of the Romanov dynasty to becoming a dominant force in Europe. A largely feudalistic society is grappling with the trend of modernity in Europe, besides being caught up in the first world war leading to the loss of many Russians.

As a communist nation, it was viewed with cynicism by the united states, which saw them as a nation with an odd ideology. With 15 republics under its belt, the union of the soviet socialist republic, despite the early struggle between Lenin and Trotsky, became a significant force in Europe with its brand of Marxist policy laced with communism.

Despite not having direct diplomatic relations with the united states, USSR played a big part during the second world war. However, differences came up after the detonation of the atomic bomb by America on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This was the beginning of the arms race between the united states and the USSR. Subsequent conflicts in the world resulted in the cold war, with each supporting one group against another in countries of conflict. The Cuban crisis almost led to the beginning of the 3rd world war but for the diplomatic finesse from both the united states and USSR. This brought about the hotline telephone link between the leaders of both nations.

Just like Ukraine today, America didn't take too kindly to the supposed building of missile posts or camps in Cuba by the USSR and vigorously opposed it.

This is just the same way Russia opposed the membership of Ukraine in NATO, especially when many communist nations that were previously under the now-defunct USSR are now members of nato; beside the fact that Ukraine is just a close door neighbor of Russia, and Russia definitely would not feel safe knowing Ukraine is a nato member.

America cannot always continue to be the lone policeman of the world; there must be a balance in the world's affairs to create a yes and no reaction. America's politics shouldn't be the only type of democracy being followed or adopted in the world. There should be a power balance as it was during the cold war era. I am sure former president Gorbachev would be disappointed today with his policies of glasnost and perestroika, which primarily led to the collapse of communism in Europe. The United States knew it would turn out to be this way and led Zelensky to believe it would be alright. One question we must ask ourselves today is, would it have bee-like this if the WARSAW pact was still in place! America can end this war, plus the suffering of the people of Ukraine. It is time they advise Ukraine to surrender rather than making Ukrainians suffer so much.
