Aside from the United States, major nations with great powers such as Germany and France have attempted to calm things down by persuading Russian President Vladimir Putin to withdraw his forces from the frontiers of Ukraine, a former Soviet republic.
However, it has been observed that Russia may indeed not want the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to admit Ukraine as a member since doing so would extend the grouping’s footprint near its borders. Furthermore, Russia believes that if Ukraine joins NATO, it will attempt to retake Crimea via military operations.
