News about the war in Ukraine Ukraine war currently 2023 – Russia-Ukraine conflict declared

As for the scope of the current conflict, it extends far beyond the issue of Ukraine. The current conflict is primarily not about Ukraine, but ultimately it is about reorganizing Europe, if not the world. According to Markus Kaim, the Russian government is again fundamentally questioning the beginnings of the European security and peace order that has been in place since 1990. This shows the seriousness of the situation. A war in Ukraine could, under certain circumstances, also result in an extension to NATO countries. Direct military support for Ukraine by NATO is still considered impossible. Since Ukraine is not a member of the NATO alliance, it cannot request assistance under Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty. However, the West is supplying Ukraine with more and more weapons.

In addition, however, the danger must not be ignored that NATO could be drawn into the war without direct military intervention. With its actions supporting Ukraine, NATO could sooner or later become a war party. This would be a dangerous development if one recalls Putin's speech, in which he clearly warned: "Whoever tries to hinder us, let alone create a threat to our country and our people, must know that Russia's response will be immediate and will lead to consequences that you have never experienced in your history." For this reason, NATO and the USA have not responded to Ukraine's demands for a no-fly zone over Ukraine and are weighing the nature of the Deliveries well, which is reflected in the discussions about main battle tanks and fighter jets.

A war of attrition has been going on for months now. As long as the parties maintain their positions, there seems to be no basis for a negotiated peace. The fighting on the war front could drag on for a long time.
