Tonight, on It's Real Talk Radio, we will be discussing America's response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. On Thursday, February 24th, 2022, Russia launched a full scale invasion of Ukraine. The world has had their eyes glued to the conflict since. These days, if you tune into the national news coverage stations, Russia's invasion of Ukraine dominates the storylines. We must ask ourselves, why is this? Why is America so invested into European politics? Russia and Ukraine are located on the other side of the globe. What invested interest does the United States have in Ukraine?
Russia and the U.S. have been adversaries for decades and tension between the 2 military giants has been brewing since most of us can remember. Under the Trump Administration, tension seemed to be at its least. Of course, this was following Russia's interferece of the 2016 Election, where Donald Trump pulled a huge upset over Hilary Clinton.
Since Russia's invasaion, the United States has severely sanctioned Russia, but Russia has shown no signs of letting up, as they continue to shoot, bomb and destory the infrastructure of Urkaine, while continuing to attempt to take over the smaller cities in Ukraine, all with the ultimate goal of taking over Ukraine's capital, Kyiv. Russia claims they want to de-Nazify Ukraine and decapitate the Ukrainian government.
Russia has reportedely taken over muliple cities on the outskirts of Kyiv, as they look to be attempting to box in Kyiv and make them vulnerable. But make no mistake about it, Ukraine has been holding their own. Fighting back with extreme force and taking many Russian casualties as Ukrainians themselves have experienced mass casualties as well.
America has donated tons of military equipment and invested billions of dollars to help the smaller Ukraine military fight one of the largest armies on earth. How do you think Russia will retaliate?
