Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has issued a dire warning that a third world war is looming, citing Western military support for Ukraine as a significant factor. The announcement comes after Lukashenko agreed to allow Russia to station nuclear weapons in his country, increasing tensions between the West and Russia.
The situation in Ukraine continues to escalate, with the first anniversary of Bucha’s liberation being marked amidst ongoing conflict. Over 1,400 people, including 37 children, were killed during 33 days of Russian occupation of the Kyiv suburb. The situation has only worsened since then, with reports of Russian missiles being fired over the city of Kharkiv.
Amid this chaos, Turkey’s parliament has approved a bill to allow Finland to join NATO, paving the way for Helsinki to become the alliance’s 31st member. This move is likely to further heighten tensions between the West and Russia, as NATO continues to expand its reach into Eastern Europe.
The world watches with bated breath as the situation in Ukraine continues to unfold, with the possibility of a third world war looming large on the horizon. The actions of world leaders in the coming days and weeks will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the future of international relations and the fate of millions of people around the world.
