Lingering Effects Expected to Persist for Years
February 24 marks the two-year anniversary of the Russia-Ukraine war, which commenced on February 24, 2022. Observers suggest that neither side has been able to secure a decisive victory thus far, and the prospect of either side emerging triumphant in the future appears bleak. It is possible that at some juncture, this conflict may cease, or both nations may opt for a ceasefire. The global community, espousing peace, eagerly awaits such a momentous occasion. However, regardless of when this war concludes, its repercussions are bound to endure for an extended period. Initially, Ukraine may have anticipated direct involvement from the United States and its NATO allies, which could have swiftly shifted the course of the conflict in Ukraine's favor.
