Historical Roots Knowledge. The establishment of NATO would help in understanding and explaining the reasons and causes for the current conflict between Ukraine and Russia.

NATO is there to defend the interests of troops that were previously assailants against Russian invasion, particularly. Russia considers Ukraine’s membership in NATO a security threat.

A Perspective Impartial
Many opinions exist about NATO’s foundation. D’Anieri 2019, 2019: The realist argues that NATO was founded by the United States and its allies to counter Soviet Union challenges. Russian-affiliated idealists claim that the Soviet Union was established to restrict the Soviet expansion in geopolitical hegemony. NATO must have been dismantled after the fall of Soviet Union. NATO denies that Russia is invading Ukraine continues to be a breach of sovereignty. Russia thought Ukraine was part of the lost territories during the cold conflict.
Absence of influence, perspective and impact
Their invasion was justified as an attempt to restore territory lost, and led to Russia’s annexation Crimea. NATO was formed to defend the dignity and liberty of women from Soviet Union invaders. D’Anieri 2019: The NATO formation lacks a proper perspective. It emphasizes the human rights abuses and the need for respecting people’s dignity. Russian aggression in Ukraine will be evaluated based upon the number and severity of the deaths or injuries of Ukrainian women during conflict.
