So what may the West do? Nicely, proper now there aren’t any Russian troops west of the Dnieper River. So why don’t we put Nato troops into western Ukraine to hold out humanitarian missions and to arrange a ahead arms provide base?

The escalation of NATO boots on the bottom inside Ukraine would make NATO a direct participant within the conflict, dramatically improve the probability of Russian assaults on NATO personnel and amenities, and lift the danger of a nuclear battle.
