887 words - 4 pages

"Russian military action is not a human rights protection mission, It is a violation of international law." said U.S. ambassador Samantha Power(1). The Russian Ukraine crisis is happening now, Russia has invade Ukraine trying to take back what they gave up years ago. If fighting started in the Ukraine country's like the U.S.A. would have to decide if and who they would side with. If country's decide to fight it could start another world war. Clearly things can take a wrong turn with the Russia Ukraine crisis and could result in the creation of a dystopia. First I will describe what is happening in Ukraine and how WW3 could start, next I will tell how Ukraine armed forces are ready to fight, then what could happen if nukes are used and what would happen if EMP's were used.
In Ukraine there are 16,000 Russian troops that came by boats, planes and helicopters while the Ukraine government calls for help from the U.K.(1). Russia has taken key locations in Ukraine, but if Russian president Vladimir Putin will deploy more troops in other parts of Ukraine is unclear(3). Also there are others getting involved by try to tell Putin to back out of Ukraine, but it looks like Putin will not back down. The U.S.A. is one, Barack Obama and Putin talked. Putin blames the U.S.A. for an international trade standoff while Obama accused Putin of breaking an international laws(2). These words could start a world war if the U.S.A. gets involved in this crisis, USA and its allies would be pulled into this and therefor Russian's allies could be pulled in makeing WW3.
Although their has been no fighting does not mean their will not be as Ukraine has not taken any action against Russia because they do not want to have war "So far, Ukrainian armed forces have exercised restraint and refrained from active resistance to the aggression, but they are in full operational readiness," said Ukrainian Ambassador Yuriy Sergeyev(1). If the Ukraine government does decide to attack Russia they could deploy their troops at any moment because their troops are ready to fight. If this happens and they do deploy the troops they would still be calling for help and bigger nations to join. With bigger nations joining their is a possibly that a nuke or an EMP may be used to get the nation out of the war and focus on there own country's issues now they have one. Although this could backfire on the nation who used such a weapon possibly getting more nations involved then the wanted to when they used a nuke or EMP.
If this crisis continues without an agreement between Russia and Ukraine and other country's, things...
