Головна - Інформаційний вплив - It is unknown exactly where the Russians will act. Any incident can mean war

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday ordered the Russian army to enter eastern Ukraine. The alleged “peacekeeping” mission in the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, which “with the support of the Kremlin” “broke away” from Kyiv in 2014, follows the official recognition of the independence of these territories by Russia. How will the main possible scenarios develop? Why did Russian President Vladimir Putin officially recognize the self-proclaimed Donetsk-Luhansk People’s Republics in eastern Ukraine? What will be the consequences of Russia’s recognition of the Donbass republics? In what territory of Donbass the Russian army will operate? What will change with the invasion of the already occupied separatist territories? Czech journalist Helena Truhla provides answers to the most important questions in her current article.
So, to the question “what does the Russian invasion of Eastern Ukraine mean for the Czech Republic?” The author of the material answers according to analysts: the attack on Donbass clearly signals that it is necessary to “beware” of Russia. They reiterate the need to get rid of dependence on Moscow, especially in the energy sector, as Russia remains the largest supplier of natural gas to Europe and a major exporter of oil. And that “in the event of a major war in Ukraine, the Czech Republic (as well as Poland) must also remember that Ukrainian refugees will seek safe haven.”
