Ukraine And Russia

Kiev has become the main critical point in relations between Moscow and the West, especially after the deployment of about 175,000 Russian soldiers on the border with Ukraine, to which were added a series of harsh statements by the president, Vladimir Putin, regarding the “Red lines” that NATO would be crossing. The reasons that prompted the head of the Kremlin to rekindle the tensions can be summarized in three main points of a historical, geopolitical and strategic nature.

From a Russian point of view, this move to the East has put its national security at risk, since, in fact, the Alliance has “reached the gates of the Federation”.
