From 1922 to 1991 Ukraine had been part of Soviet Union. But Nowdays the news that has become apple of an eye of every channle is the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine that may turn into World War III for the world at any time. Russia-Ukraine issue is not unique. Misunderstanding between these two countries has been goining on since 1991 when the Soviet Union was dissolved follwoing the collapse of its communist goverment, 15 republics—Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Belorussia, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan Kazakhstan , Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia came into being as independent states. The conflict between these two countries increased in 2014 when Russia seized Crimea which was part of Ukraine earlier but Russian had been claiming Crimea as part of its territory since 1991. In this conflict approximately 13,000 civililian, 41,00 Ukrarine troops and 56,50 pro-Russian separatists have lost their life. Ukraine wants to get membership of NATO but Russia does not want it that’s why in 2022 their conflict took new turn. NATO means North Atlantic Treaty Organization that was founded on 4 April 1949. It was an military alliance among 12 countries including Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy,Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway,Portugal, UK and USA to defence themselves from foreigner attack. After WWII, Russia became powerful and its power extended till East Germany which was great threat for America because extension of Russia had put capitalism also in danger that led NATO to come into existince. NATO is built around the principles of collective defence which means an attack on any member of it will be considered attack on all members. Today NATO has 30 members and its headquarters is located in capital of Belgium “Brussels” Now Russia does not want Ukraine to be member of NATO because Russia knows if Ukraine gets membership of NATO then its first focus will be to get Crimea back from Russia with the help of NATO and it cannot face all simantanously. To save world from another horric war all countries must play their role to bring Russia and Ukraine on peacful rountable conference to solve the problems otherwise this war once again will take lives of million of innocent civilians. Peace comes from discusision not from using weapons on each other.
