In the last 24 hours, Russia has gone to war against Ukraine, what could be the beginning of World War III! 🙁
While the United States will not send combat troops into Ukraine to help that nation, the fear is real that Vladimir Putin and the Russian Federation will see the occupation of Ukraine as the first step to dismantle the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which has taken in 15 nations that were once part of the Soviet orbit before 1991!
Four of these nations in NATO border on the Russian Federation, while others border on Ukraine.
Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia have direct boundaries with Russia, and Rumania, Slovakia, and Hungary border on Ukraine.
American combat troops would be required to intervene if any NATO nation is attacked, and the danger of nuclear weapons is also a major concern.
Also, with the Russian seizure of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site in the first day of the Ukraine-Russia war, the danger of leakage of nuclear radiation is a real threat to the entire European continent.
So we are entering a major change in Europe, the greatest since World War II ended in 1945!
