Background of Conflict Between Russia & Ukraine
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia was expecting good treatment and support from Western & EU countries. Earlier Russia tried to become the part of NATO and EU, but was not allowed to join these distinguished clubs of nations. Ex Russian states were welcomed in NATO and EU. Now NATO was going to make Ukraine its full member. As i told you above that ethnically both countries have same roots and Russia shares 2000 km boarder with Ukraine. It was hard for President Putin to allow NATO to reach its border areas. This act of Western countries was just like crossing the red line for Russia. Putin was noticing the attitude of USA and Western countries. He first focused on getting economic stability.
Now Russia have foreign reserves of 600 billion rupees, and these foreign reserves are not US dollar based. Russia also planned to grow and produce all the products of its need within the country for facing the future expected sanctions on it after its any offensive act. Now Russia is not ready to allow NATO to reach its borders. This was the main reason of Russian aggression on Ukraine. Unlike expectations NATO and US are not defending Ukraine against Russia. People are also saying that if Russia is invader than who invaded Iraq,Vietnam and Afghanistan in near past. But remember that no one has right to blame the victim. Such people have negative thinking.

Just Belarus and China are supporting Putin. China is minutely observing the reaction of NATO and West on Russian aggression as China is also committed to invade Taiwan in future.
Axis of these powers are going to introduce rather impose a new world order after USA withdrawal from Afghanistan. US President Joe Biden is playing the role of Neville Chamberlain in this conflict. Russia and China are playing the role of Germany and Japan. Everyone was expecting third world war on Russian invasion of Ukraine, but no physical reaction was noted.
