Russia is in trouble
Recently, at the General Assembly of the United Nations, there was a vote on Russia’s condemnation of the annexation of four regions of Ukraine. In this, 143 members voted in favor of the proposal, 35 abstained and five were against it. That is, Putin had to face tremendous condemnation. Russia’s only four friends are North Korea, Syria, Belarus and Nicaragua.
On 30 September Putin gave a speech and announced the annexation of four regions of Ukraine. The member countries that were missing from voting were also India and China. Both countries have publicly expressed their discomfort over the war. Russia is trying to strengthen its diplomatic ties in the Middle East. But here Qatar and Kuwait have made it clear that Ukraine’s border has to be respected.
President surrounded by country
If we talk about Russia, then even here the difficulties are increasing for Putin. Recently, the top military leadership has targeted Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and the Chief of General. Shoigu is the most powerful leader in Russia after Putin. If Putin removes him, then he will have one less rival. Also, this decision may disappoint some people. It is estimated that seven million Russians have left the country since the start of the war.
how to get respect
If Putin wants to preserve his reputation and earn the respect of his citizens, then he will have to win Ukraine by any means. But Russia’s victory is starting to look difficult. By mentioning nuclear weapons, Putin himself has indicated that the war will be prolonged. Putin has also made it clear that the war is not only with Ukraine but also with NATO. The blast on the Kerech bridge connecting Crimea to Moscow was considered an insult to Putin. Putin himself witnessed its construction.
The blast on the bridge was a big signal from Ukraine about the war. But recently three such things have happened which are enough to tell that Putin can end this war. Turkish diplomats have spoken of Putin’s desire to negotiate a bigger deal with Europe. Recently, Elon Musk also tweeted which was related to the peace proposal for Ukraine. Apart from this, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also said that Putin can hold peace talks with his American counterpart at the G20 summit in Indonesia.
