I do not fully understand what is happening in Ukraine. Yes, I live there, but much has happened that surprised my Ukrainian friends, so I am guessing about the future at times.
Just as they are.
But, Russia is digging in for the long haul in Crimea. They are kicking out Ukrainians from their bases, which Ukraine never did to Russian forces.
Russia is claiming they are not conducting military exercises to intimidate Ukraine or prepare for an invasion, but they are conducting exercises. Maybe they don’t plan on invading Ukraine, but they say they did not plan on invading Crimea.
So, for now, Russia is there for the long term. And that increases the risk of war. At least in the short term.
Will you join me and pray for peace?
