Russia is gaining from Ukraine conflict
Russia is gaining from the ongoing Ukrainian conflict.
In the wake of Russia’s annexation of Crimea in March, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a bill that would allow him to send troops into Ukraine if needed.
The Prime Minister of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, said Russia has already sent an unspecified number of troops to regions near the border with Ukraine in order to “ensure stability.”
Russia’s support for embattled separatist forces helped them take control over parts of eastern Ukraine and discard the ceasefire. But analysts fear that Russia’s growing involvement could lead to a renewed possibility for conflict or even war with NATO countries.
