Russia-Ukraine struggle newest updates – The Washington Post

Evaluation: Russia’s struggle in Ukraine finds echoes within the Balkans. A few months after launching Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Putin tried to justify his struggle by citing the Western Balkans, pointing to the legacy of the 1999 NATO intervention within the former Yugoslavia, The Post’s Ishaan Tharoor writes within the Immediately’s WorldView publication.

The Western alliance’s actions then, Putin advised, have been no completely different than what his forces search to do now in making an attempt to ensure the independence of two pro-Kremlin separatist entities within the japanese Ukrainian area generally known as Donbas. Kosovo’s president, Vjosa Osmani, sees an altogether completely different parallel, Tharoor writes.
