When Taiwan is busy preparing for the new Wuhan pneumonia variant virus Omicron that has invaded the community, just entering January 2022, China and Russia are almost at the same time with the United States and Europe. If everyone thinks that 2021 is tense enough, the intensity of geostrategic conflict at the beginning of 2022 is even higher. Several conference calls between Biden and Putin have failed to ease tensions on the Russian-Ukrainian border. In early December (2021), U.S. intelligence officials indicated that Russia may plan to deploy a force of 170,000 troops to invade Ukraine by the end of January 2022, so as to resolve the Donbas and other issues after 2014.
Ukrainian national security officials also said that in early December, Russia had nearly 100,000 troops on the Russian-Ukrainian border, and to increase its troops. U.S. President Biden had two phone calls with Russian President Vladimir Putin in early and late December, but it seemed to have no effect. Then on January 14 this year, Ukraine suffered a large-scale cyber attack, which is believed to be launched by Russia behind the scenes. The Russian army on the Russian-Ukrainian border also held live-fire exercises. Speculation about whether Russia will invade Ukraine is rampant. The current scale is not comparable to the Ukraine-Russia conflict last April. Clashes Shadow Making between Ukrainian teams and Ukrainian Donbas rebels (little green men) escalated last April when Russia immediately added 20,000 troops to the border.
NATO has also sent warships into the Black Sea, but the two sides have since withdrawn from the border, although Russia claimed in June that it also clashed with the British navy in the Black Sea. Therefore, neither the scale nor the seriousness of the military is as it is now . In the second conference call with Biden, Putin made three demands to NATO and the United States: not to allow Ukraine to join NATO, NATO not to accept new members, and not to build military bases in the former Soviet republics. These three points were directly rejected by the United States. arrow_forward_ios了解更多 Powered by GliaStudio More about this source textSource text required for additional translation information Send feedback Side panels
