Russian President Vladimir Putin has finally made a move after keeping the world guessing for months. Though it is not a full-fledged invasion of the sovereign territory of Ukraine, his actions have considerably worsened the situation in Eastern Europe.
On February 21, 2022, Moscow formally recognized two breakaway regions in eastern Ukraine as ‘independent.’ The two regions, Donetsk People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic, declared independence from Ukraine in the aftermath of the 2014 Ukrainian Revolution and have been controlled by separatists since.
President Putin signed a decree while he was joined by Russia-backed separatist leaders of the two regions. After doing so, much to the international community’s further dismay, President Putin ordered the deployment of Russian forces to “keep the peace” in the city of Donetsk and its surrounding areas.
