Russian President Vladimir Putin declared two breakaway regions in Eastern Ukraine as independent today, thus stoking fears that there will be a major escalation soon.
Along with declaring the Donbass region independent, Putin orders “peacekeeping” troops into the region in. order to secure their safety and territorial integrity.
Why is NATO doing nothing? Russia knows full well that Germany, needing cheap gasoline, will not not attempt to stop him. Germany’s dependency on Russia oil and gas has rendered NATO ineffective and split.
Russia’s recognition of the Donabass and troop deployment – Putin has revealed just how weak the West really is and just how easy it will be to conquer Ukraine.
