President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that Russia’s state survival was at stake in Ukraine.

“So for us, this is not a geopolitical task, but a task of the survival of Russian statehood, creating conditions for the future development of the country and our children,” Reuters reported. 

Putin accused the West of using Ukraine as a tool for the “strategic defeat” of Russia; instead, it has destroyed Ukrainian cities, killed thousands of civilians, and forced millions of people to flee their homes.

He further said the enemy had been expecting Russia’s collapse of the financial system, unemployment rise, people protest and finally, the country’s collapse within 2-3 weeks or a month. However, instead, it proved that “fundamental foundations of Russia’s stability are much stronger than anyone thought,” he said.

The Russia-Ukraine conflict began on 24 February 2022, but the escalation started in 2014 when Russia occupied Crimea.

Since the beginning of the conflict, the US and its allies have assisted Ukraine with critical security assistance, such as ammunition and weaponry, to fight Russia.

On the first anniversary of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the US helped Kyiv with $2 billion in arms. The United States also announced #250 million in aid to bolster Ukraine’s energy infrastructure against Russian attack. 

However, since February 2022, at least 8,000 people have been confirmed killed, and 13,300 people have been injured, according to the UN human rights office.

Given the Russia-Ukraine war and the ongoing geopolitical confrontation between the West and Russia, a peace agreement and cease-fire between the two sides appear inconceivable.
