Russia-Ukraine War Report

On the 24th of February 2022, Russia began its special military operation into Ukraine. The date of release of this report marks the second anniversary of the Ukraine conflict. From an international viewpoint, Moscow didn’t want Ukraine to get amalgamated into the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), the cornerstone of western security. Ukraine joining NATO would undermine the security of the Russian Federation.

According to Professor John Mearsheimer, “Putin maintained that admitting those two countries to NATO would represent a "direct threat" to Russia.” With this in mind, this report aims to provide where Russia and the West stand at the mark of the second year as Ukraine continues to grind to restore its territorial integrity & sovereignty, i.e. its statehood. 


Chapter one delves into the military help and support that Russia is receiving from countries such as Iran, North Korea, and China during the crisis in Ukraine. Chapter Two covers the considerable military and financial aid supplied to Ukraine by European countries. Chapter Three explores military coalitions formed by Ukraine and other allies through initiatives such as the Ramstein Conference.


Chapter Four examines the conflict's far-reaching repercussions on the global economy, focusing on energy markets, supply networks, and food security across the world. Chapter Five also discusses the impact on global food supply and security. Chapter Six examines the economic cost to Russia of Western sanctions and defensive trade restrictions enacted.


Chapter Seven discusses the diplomatic efforts made by international leaders during their visits to Russia and Ukraine over the period of the conflict. Chapter Eight examines the historical history of Ukraine's foreign policy orientation, leading up to its current position.


Finally, Chapter Nine examines prospective US methods for managing its future relationship with Russia in the post-conflict scenario, assessing hardline vs moderate policy alternatives in depth.
