Russia Against Ukraine and U.S. Alliance


Gracelin Watts, Staff Reporter

Ukraine versus Russia has been an ongoing war since February 20, 2014. Most people have not been made aware of Ukraine versus Russia war until just recently on February 24, 2022 when the U.S started to inch its way into being involved in this big moment in history. 

The United States established diplomatic relations with Ukraine in 1991 and now Ukraine is utilizing our alliance with them to hold their grounds against Russia. 

Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, has decided to declare invasions on Ukraine because he felt threatened and is against the Ukraine’s unification with the Western Defensive Alliance, NATO. Sergei Naryshkin is chief of Russia’s Foreign Intelligent Service and as Naryshkin stated, “Russia’s future and its future place in the world are at stake.” 

Ukraine was forced to create a stronger military than they had before to with stand Russia’s cruelty against them. This has caused Ukraine to ask for the United States’ help by sending our soldiers over to help fight in this war against Russia. 

Many know that Russia has the most nuclear bombs in the world, a nuclear warhead inventory of 5,977, and they are able to destroy cities at a time. Assisting Ukraine has potentially put the United States in danger.

Rumors have begun about the nuclear bombs heading toward us. Virginia, being the most targeted since the Pentagon and the White house are located here, where the bombs could potentially be dropped by Putin on behalf of Russia. 

American intelligent officials believe the chances of nuclear weapons coming towards us is low, it is still a possibility.

President, Joe Biden, has stated, “any use of nuclear weapons in this conflict on any scale would be completely unacceptable to us as well as the rest of the world and would entail severe consequences.” The U.S. has a sense of security with our military defending our nation. 

Nuclear bombs being potentially, unnecessarily utilized would be from Russia starting to falter from the fact Putin not having confidence “in the ability of his ground troops to hold territory, much less take over Ukraine.”

Putin explains he isn’t bluffing with the threat of dropping nuclear bombs.


There has already been a total of 34,000 deaths total in the Ukraine versus Russia war. 9,000 being Ukrainians and 25,000 being Russians. On top of those tragedies, there has been thirteen million displaced people. 

With all of this comes the question of when will all of the madness end?
