|Russia vs Ukraine: start of world war 3|
There is no doubt that Putin needs to be taught a lesson. For this it is important for USA to take this event as an option to remove Russia from the security council. Russia has violated the UN charter agreement. The greed of Putin is unlimited. The world has seen this during the disintegration of Georgia in the year 2008. Putin has forgot the thumb rule that with great power a great responsibility is attached. Expansion of Russia can not be brought at the expense of violating the fundamental rights of the people of Ukraine.
From the past hundred years the only thing which has interested Russian ego is nothing but the Caucasus regions. This region was the reason for Russia to indulge in the World War one. During World War Two the region was a battle-place to the worlds most powerful and egoistic countries. The stories of Leningrad and Stalingrad wars are still vibrant in the eyes of people living on this border which separates the might of communist from that of capitalist sentiments.
Again for one another time these two mightiest countries have come face to face. With the Russian forces virtually capturing the Crimea region in the South of Ukraine, the situation has become critical. John Karry has warned Russia of a possible consequences specially in the form of sanctions over it. However, this seems to be an impossible task specially when Putin is so serious about protecting the Russian people living across whole of the Ukraine.
The heated arguments taking place between the diplomats of both sides is not a good sign for the region. Barack Obama is looking for all possible options specially after failed diplomacy in Syria issue. He does possess a pressure to perform on this issue. So chances are high that these two countries might go for a virtually factual war.
How does it all happen ?
The links of this question belong to World War Two. At that time, Stalin accused the people of this region specially Tartars of Crimea of helping Hitler. So he believed that it is essential to punish them and hence he forced them out of the region. During their excavation to middle Asia, mainly to Turkey, nearly 20% of the Tartars died of starvation and violence. So these Tartars generally hates Russia. They came back to their homeland Crimea during early nineteens.
When Russian federation collapsed in 1991, Ukraine became an independent country. Mr. Kuchma became the president of Ukraine in the year 1994. He ruled from 1995 to 2005. But the pick of all these things began when Georgiy Gongadze, a popular journalist was kidnapped and killed in the year 2000. People accused Kuchma of killing him. So in order to pacify the people he decided not to fight the elections of 2004. Instead he presented Ukraine with Victor Yanukovych.
The Orange revolution ?
During all these chaos an oil queen lady named as Yulia Tymshenko emerged as a strong contender for Presidential election. She with another guy named as Victor Yushchenko formed Fatherland party. They both opposed the election and successfully retrograded the Yanukovych Goverment. This revolution was known as the Orange revolution. For the most part of the decade Yulia remained in power.
However, during the election of 2010 Victor Yanucovych won the election. He made constitutional remedies making president as the sole powerful person. He framed series of false charges against Tymshenko and sent her to jail. At the same time, he cancelled an economic deal with European Union and instead went for a deal with Russia. Putin promised him that Russia would buy a 15 billion dollar Ukrainian bonds and would cut the oil rates. People of Ukraine did not like this deal. According to them it was a compromise done with the power. This act of Yanikovych prompted a new revolution on the Maidan square of capital Kiev.
During the Maidan square revolution Yanukovych was ousted and the power came back in the hands of the Fatherland party. Arseniy yatsenuk was declared as the interim Prime Minister. Russia saw this as a violation and suffocation of Russian speaking people of Ukraine and they waged a war against Ukraine's new government.
Strategically Ukraine is an important country for Russiaas all the oil roots pass from this country. For Europe and Ukraine, Russia plays an important role in supplying oil required for the heavy industries of the region. Russia has stopped the movements from Crimea with the help of its Black Sea Naval Fleet. Arseniy Yatsenuk, the interim PM has accused Russia of waging a war. While America is more serious than ever to tackle the the further expansion of Russia.
People of Ukraine have been tired of Russian influence and its suffocation. For nearly a decade Russia has controlled the whole Ukraine economy with his oil tactics. People of Ukraine want to come out of all this and want to form a liberal country. For this they want a complete independence from Russia. This can only be possible if America put forward the case of Ukraine with more might and valor. Nearly Similar situation emerged during world war one. At that time the villain was Kaiser William and this time it is Putin. This villains will come and go. If the countries wanted a world to be a better and liberal place then they will have to go for the diplomatic ways. There is a last chance of this with the G8 summit which is going to take place in Russia. If it will fail then god will have to save the World.
