More than 2,500 have been killed in the conflict in Ukraine, and relations between Russia and the west are more tense than at any time since the cold war.

Where will this conflict end, and what are Vladimir Putin's objectives in this protracted war? In recent weeks Russian involvement has become more visible.

Russia has moved an estimated 1,000 soldiers and 200 armoured patrol carriers deep into Ukrainian territory. Putin may have more to lose than to gain from an expensive and risky annexation bid.

Two thousand dead? Thats not even one single division of soldiers!
People need to understand the true scale of the military and what acceptable losses are in a war.
One division of soldiers has over 10k men in it and the military has over a hundred divisions.
2k casualties are very very acceptable losses especially for a war that involves the Russians which has usually ended with millions of dead on both sides like in World War One and Two

It’s a Russian province that declared themselves a separate country illegally during the collapse of the Soviet Union
Russia is not weak anymore though and now they want these rouge provinces back in the federation and they will take them back by force if they have to

Okay look, we're on a Cease fire and if we wanted we would have defeated Ukraine within months! But we're not monsters to invade and annex any country without an actual reson unlike the USA.

Stupid question...
What does Putin want in Ukraine?
Why not ask,
What does Britain want in Ireland?
Or,
What does the US want in Mexico?
Or,
What does China want in Korea?
The better question is,
Why does the British government refuse to show evidence that Russia was behind the Skripal incident?

Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and next Iran? everybody sees who the real threat to world peace is.
Truth seeker
Who wages illegal wars of aggression, its not Russia.

putin needs to be taught a lesson Ukraine needs to armed to the teeth by the west and make it too costly for Russia to stay . the reason Russia left Afghanistan is because of the stinger missile and other weapons like it. Russia lost so many tanks and aircraft it was forced to withdraw or leave its borders undefended . this is the way you defeat the bear without getting into a all out war with them.

Maybe Putin wants to recreate another USSR.
