  • Why don't you do a slide show on the10 reasons the Kiev government attacked its own citizensin the Eastern Ukraine? That might be revealing. It's a unique method to manage groups that aredifferent or opposed to you politically - declare them terrorists and attack their cities and towns.

  • The US have the legitimate concern of Russia intervene to Ukraine conflict. The western world perceived as an invasion of sovereign nation. I hope Stan understand the right of a 'Sovereign' Country under the international law. History noted that super power country like Russia, USA, England, France have broken the same law. Just like what happen in the island of Falkland. When the British forces invade the island, which is Argentina territory. I remember the US supported England for their illegal action. The super power nation created the international law, yet they break the law.

  • Hey Stan, you don't know anything about Ukraine, Russia nor the US. You talk to much insulting people. Yet you sounded no idea about many things about the conflict & most specially the international law. You pretend that you know the conflict in Ukraine. Why don't u stick to the real issue, instead telling people that they don't know. The truth is..., you really don't know anything either.

  • vova, very ridiculously:) Bravo! lol :))))) you repeat my words)
    you trust cheap western propaganda and misinformation, but you don't want to accept TRUTH. More precisely, you WANT to trust only western perverted, false version of events. It is typical and banal. Since the truth doesn't coincide with your moral principles and ideology(!)

10 Reasons Why Russia Invaded Ukraine Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Reasons Russia Invaded Ukraine
  • 2. First, let’s start with the PRETEXT
  • 3. Demographics of Ukraine/Crimea
  • 4. Ukraine, and particularly the Crimean Peninsula, has large Russian populations that Vladimir Putin claims to be protecting. “I reiterate, we are talking about protecting our citizens and compatriots, about protecting the most fundamental human right – the right to live and nothing more.” - Russian foreign minister
  • 5. OK, so now onto the REAL REASONS
  • 6. Geography of the Crimean Peninsula
  • 7. Russia views the Crimean Peninsula as strategically important. Russia’s only WARM WATER NAVAL BASE is in Sevastopol. And Crimea serves as a CHOKE POINT to and from the Sea of Azoz.
  • 8. Location of Ukraine
  • 9. Source: Agence France-Presse Of the roughly 160 billion cubic meters of natural gas that Russia sold to Europe last year, which equated to a quarter of European demand, roughly half traveled through Ukrainian pipelines.
  • 10. Natural Resources
  • 11. According to Bloomberg News, “After making a natural gas discovery in neighboring Romania that may flow fast enough to supply half of that country’s consumption, [ExxonMobil] plans exploration in Bulgaria, Russia and Ukraine.”
  • 12. At present, the Black Sea is one of the last frontiers in the oil and natural gas industries. At present, there are fewer than 100 wells drilled, compared with more than 7,000 in the North Sea. Exxon Mobil is so confident of prospects in the unexplored Black Sea that it was planning to spend $735 million to drill just two deep-water wells off Ukraine’s coast.
  • 13. Agricultural Resources
  • 14. Ukraine is considered the BREADBASKET OF EUROPE
  • 15. 30% According to Wikipedia, Ukraine possess 30% of the world’s black soil.
  • 16. Military
  • 17. As I’ve already noted, the Crimean Peninsula is a critically important for Russia’s navy. Its Black Sea naval fleet is headquartered there, and the peninsula controls entry to and egress from the Sea of Azoz. To make matters worse for Russia, the majority of the Black Sea coastline is held by NATO allies -- that is, Russia’s geopolitical adversaries. “Put simply, without a naval base in Crimea. Russia is finished as a global military power.” - Greg Satell, Forbes
  • 18. History
  • 19. Aside from the present and future significance of Ukraine, the country also “looms LARGE in Russian history.” “It was the site of THE CRIMEAN WAR fought in the 1850’s against the French, British, and Ottoman Empire. Although Russia lost, the bravery of its soldiers is still a source of Russian pride, MUCH LIKE THE ALAMO IN TEXAS.” - Greg Satell, Forbes
  • 20. Geopolitical Ambitions
  • 21. “Without Ukraine, Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire.” - Zbigniew Brzezinski
  • 22. It worked before…
  • 23. Remember when Russia invaded Georgia in 2008 -- the country, that is?
  • 24. No consequences
  • 25. Last but not least, the consequences of invading Ukraine are likely to be de minimis. In the first case, the Ukrainian army is no match for Russian military might. And in the second case, the Western world, and particularly the United States, appear extremely reluctant to intervene given the recent past – Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Egypt – and power of the potential adversary – Russia. Not Vladimir Putin
