Combat Begins in Ukraine

A full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine is now underway and the world is scrambling to figure out how to respond. After weeks of posturing and laying claim to what Russia now calls the "independent" Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin has ordered in troops all over the eastern European country. The assault was done by land, air, and sea with countless Russian troops entering through the Russian and Belarusian borders as well as the Black and Azov Seas.

Several eastern European countries, including Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland, are meeting under the pretext of NATO Article 4, which allies can do when they view their territorial integrity or political independence to be in danger. The United States and European Union are already imposing sanctions against Russia and the fallout has been a shock to global stock markets. This attack by Vladimir Putin is the largest Europe has witnessed since the end of World War II, and with so many countries getting involved, the concept of a Third World War is not entirely out of the question.
