About this event

On February 24th, Russia invaded Ukraine. The event was immediately condemned by countries in the American sphere of influence: NATO, the EU, Australia, etc. Heavy sanctions were imposed. Russian assets were seized. Russian media were censored. The rest of the world was more hesitant to take sides. 

Countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East have refused to condemn and sanction Russia for what Moscow claims is a defensive operation to protect Russia’s national security and interests. What exactly is the background of the current conflict in Ukraine? 

So many questions begging for answers. It's time for a debate!
