The Russian-Ukrainian conflict is approaching war

The Russian-Ukrainian conflict has reached new heights, heading towards all-out war, after Russia on Monday recognized separatist areas in eastern Ukraine, including territory now held by Ukrainian forces.

Russia’s recognition of these areas on Monday prompted the United States and its allies to prepare for a new set of penalties on Russia after sending forces which it euphemistically described as “peacekeeping troops”.

Russia’s maneuvers were reprimanded by several nations at a rushed meeting of the United Nations Security Council on Monday night.
