Kiyv/Moscow – Ukraine’s President Zelenskyy urged Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Turkish President Erdogan and French President Emmanuel Macron to talk to the Russian President Vladimir Putin and ask him to end the war. Putin refused to end the war even after a discussion with the heads of three nations. There are two reasons for this.

First, Putin does not trust the US or Europe. Putin said the US wants to surround Russia on the pretext of Europe. Ukraine wants to join the US-dominated North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). It could hamper the security of Russia.

Ukraine has sought membership in the European Union. According to the agreement between NATO and the European Union, if any of the member countries is attacked, all countries will fight together in response to it. Therefore, as soon as Ukraine becomes a member of NATO, Russia will be attacked by NATO countries. It would give the US the freedom to directly attack Russia.

The second reason is that Putin wants the same status that Russia enjoyed under the Soviet Union. Russia’s economy is currently collapsing. The Soviet Union emerged as a major power after WW2. Russia wanted to dominate the European countries, as a result, Russia’s relations with the European countries deteriorated. The US, taking advantage of Russia’s deteriorating situation, wants Ukraine to become a member of NATO and the European Union. It would enable the US to emerge as a superpower.
