In a sudden major diplomatic initiative, French President Emmanuel Macron arrived in Moscow on Monday amid fears of confrontation between Russia and NATO over Ukraine. Around the same time, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz went to Washington to meet US President Joe Biden. The German chancellor’s visit to the US, however, was intended to debunk the notion that NATO had any internal differences on the Ukraine issue or that Germany was reluctant to move forward on the issue. After the meeting, both Biden and Scholz showed solidarity, saying that they are all together on this issue. But despite this demonstration of unity, everyone’s attention was focused on the meeting of Putin and Macron in Moscow. Russia has been saying repeatedly that it has no intention of military intervention in Ukraine, despite the mobilization of one lakh thirty thousand soldiers on the Ukrainian border. America and European countries argue that if this is true then they should withdraw their soldiers from the border, but Russia is not ready for this. Before that, he wants a promise that Ukraine and other former Soviet nations will not be included in NATO. America and European countries are not ready to give any such assurance. Therefore, this situation of tense standoff has persisted for the last several days. However, in the current situation, the situation of war is not good for either side.
