Tensions are Still Rising Between Ukraine and Russia


New developments have caused tensions to rise again between Russia and Ukraine. This has led to Joe Biden warning of an invasion by Russia on Thursday.

Actions by Russia have led to tensions increasing again; these acts were: tensions between Russian-backed separatists rising and Russia lying about withdrawing troops away from Ukraine’s border.

AP News says, “NATO allies accused Russia of misleading the world by saying it was returning some troops to their bases.”

Recently, Russia has resorted to more extreme measures. Russia decided to kick out the deputy chief of mission, Bart Gorman, from the U.S. Embassy in Moscow; Russia has made no comment about why this action was taken.

“The move was ‘unprovoked’ and ‘an escalatory step,” says the U.S. State Department.

The U.S. President, Joe Biden, has come out and made some comments about what has been going on in Ukraine. Biden’s main concern is that he believes that Russia will invade Ukraine.

Joe Biden says, “every indication we have is they’re prepared to go into Ukraine, attack Ukraine.”
