The standoff with Russia over Ukraine entered a critical phase this week. Moscow has readied still more forces on the Ukraine border. Diplomatic ways are being explored and the techniques of potential solutions, still undeveloped is likely to happen.


The United States has splintered NATO to alert and depute the forces east. “The priority for me on the Ukrainian question in dialogue with Russia and de-escalation. I’m very worried by the situation on the ground,” Macron told reporters in France.
