It's been almost a year since Russia started invading Ukraine on February 24 2022. However, until now there has been no sign thatbothsides will end the war soon. It seems that the Russo-Ukrainian war will last a long time in line with the threats of former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev regarding nuclear war, and the decisions of the United States and Germany to send dozens of battle tanks to Ukraine. The U.S.will send 31 M1 Abrams battle tanks to Ukraine, while Germany will allow the delivery of 14 Leopard 2 A6 tanks. Overall, France, Britain, the U.S., Poland, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden will send hundreds of tanks and heavy armoured vehicles to fortify Ukraine as it enters a new phase of the war and attempts to break through Russian lines.

Of course, this sparks Russian anger. Recently,Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev warned the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) that Moscow's defeat in Ukraine could trigger a nuclear war. Medvedev, who serves as Deputy Chair of the Russian Security Council, emphasized that nuclear powers have never lost in major conflicts. He also said military alliances and other Western defense leaders should weigh the risks of their policies. He emphasized that the defeat of nuclear countries in a conventional war could trigger a nuclear war. The Kremlin was quick to back up Medvedev's statement, saying it fully complied with Moscow principles.

Medveded's statement immediately received criticism from the Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg.According to Stoltenberg, Russia's nuclear rhetoric is completely irresponsible and dangerous. He saidthatRussia should know that a nuclear war can never be won and therefore, should not happen. Stoltenberg also emphasized that NATO will continue to monitor what Russia is doing, and react if necessary.

The Russo-Ukrainian war, which also dragged the involvement of NATO members, has claimed thousands of lives, lost countless property, and has had an impact on the global economy. Coupled with the pandemic that has hit the world, making an already bad situation will of course be even worse.


Sun Tzu, a Chinese military general who lived in the period 544 to 496 BC, known through his book The Art of War, once said, "there is no example of a country benefiting from a prolonged war." This remark is very relevant to what is currently happening.  Both Russia and Ukraine and their supporters should realize that a war, let alone a prolonged one, will only harm all parties. Not only those who are fighting, it doesn't matter who wins, but also other countries around the world will feel the effects.
