The fire cannot stop if people continuously put oil on it. The same with the case in Ukraine. Russia has focused on military targets. But European countries including Britain, Germany, Sweden and many others provided weapons just for human beings to carry it such as rifle, or antitank weapons. That means more people are likely killed with the exchange of fires.
These weapons fuel the war to last longer than expected and no one knows how long it will last and how many lives will cost.
The answer is blowing in the wind.
I think we should end the war as soon as possible. Why? Because these two countries are resources rich countries. Russia is rich in oil and natural gas. Ukraine is rich in food and grain. These are all raw materials we in Europe need. If the war lasts long, the oil prices will surge up and the grain will become expansive too.
People in Europe might be able to bear for certain period of time, but what about those who live in Africa, in the middle east countries? If the war lasts too long time, when the spring time comes, people can’t go to the field to grow crops because they are engaged in fighting, then it will be a horrible disaster for the world.
Maybe you argue that everybody wants to stop the war, but who can stop it?
War can stop if people exchange their ideas but not fires. War can stop if they continue to talk and think thoroughly about it. How can we stop the war?
Life is important. Save lives. In order to save lives, man must top the war. If you want to stop the war, you have to understand why the war started.
The war started because Russia felt they are in danger if NATO do not guarantee that they do not accept Ukraine’s membership.
Right now NATO and EU have done the right thing by not involving directly in the war. But giving weapons to the Ukraine is also a way to fuel the war. Ukraine civilians got the weapon and if they do not know how to use it properly, it meant more danger for them.
First step is to restrict the war between Russia and Ukraine and then the two sides sit down to talk about how to solve the problems. If the two kinds of people cannot live together, they should separate.
It is most conducive to Ukraine if you keep neutral. Now it is de facto that the NATO understands Russia and does not send troops to Ukraine. This is first step.
The second step is to negotiate about the status of Krimea and two other republics. They already declared independent and Russia supports them. This is up to Russia and Ukraine to discuss and the main thing is to cease fire.
