An Uncalled For War In Ukraine vs Russia

"I never justify, sustain, or in any way or to any extent uphold this cruel, heartless, aimless unnecessary war." ~ Franklin Pierce

"I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity." ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower

"It is not enough to say we must not wage war. It is necessary to love peace and sacrifice for it." ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

The War In Ukraine, While Devastating, Has Brought Only A Few Positive Outcomes

The war, which erupted without any legitimate reason, has brought Western countries together. NATO allies joined forces to impose sanctions on Russia and provide military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine. The conflict has forced European nations to reconsider their energy dependence on Russia and to increase their defence budgets. Furthermore, the Ukrainian people have shown remarkable resilience in defending their country, earning them widespread international admiration and support.

The War Has Brought Numerous Negative Consequences

The conflict in Ukraine has resulted in a major humanitarian crisis, displacing millions of Ukrainians and causing harm to countless civilians. The country's infrastructure has suffered widespread damage, leading to global food and energy shortages. Furthermore, geopolitical tensions have escalated, raising concerns about the possibility of a broader conflict and even a nuclear confrontation.

Global Ripple Effects

The effects of the war are felt worldwide, causing a ripple effect that disrupts global supply chains and leads to shortages and inflation. As a result, the economic situation is worsening globally. Geopolitically, the war has escalated tensions between Russia and the West, raising concerns about the risk of a nuclear war. Moreover, the cybersecurity risks have increased, and Ukraine is experiencing a significant brain drain as professionals flee the conflict.

Environmental Destruction & Extreme Trauma

Two significant challenges that Ukraine is currently facing are environmental destruction and a mental health crisis caused by the trauma of war. These issues have substantial economic impacts, which can affect the global economy. Developing economies in Africa are particularly vulnerable to these effects, as they may experience worsening food and energy security, which can lead to social unrest. As a matter of fact, Russia has promised to provide free shipment and no grain payment to many African countries, which can further strain global fiscal resources and increase deglobalization trends.


After more than two years, countless lives have been lost, and global destabilization politically, economically, socially, and geographically has ensued.
