Opinion | Winter: Putin’s next deadly weapon in Ukraine

The Russian war (or the military operation as pro-Putin media outlets like to call it) on Ukraine has been ongoing for the past nine months. Its battlefield is no longer Ukraine itself as its repercussions have knocked on the doors of the whole world.

The Russians thought that their “operation” would end within weeks, if not days, and the leaders of the NATO countries thought that their sanctions would paralyze the military, economic and social capabilities of Russia and lead to the cessation of the war probably by the Russian people who will revolt against their leadership as a result of the blockade, a scenario that turned out to be no more than wishful thinking.

The Russian war in Ukraine coupled with the Corona pandemic contributed to spreading panic and fear in the whole world and at different levels. Hunger invades Africa and the Middle East as a result of the exorbitant prices and the loss of the main sources of necessary commodities.

Lack of energy hits the whole of Europe and this led to sweeping snow and cold attack launched by the winter. The world leaders who met in Sharm el-Sheikh failed to save the world from climatic changes that burn forests and increase floods. The Russians have destroyed half of Ukraine’s energy centers, leaving more than 10 million people without electricity.

The European winter is one of the harshest winters in the world, especially in Russia and Ukraine, where the temperature reaches thirty degrees below zero.

humanity has turned into a victim of world leaders who build their glories on the shoulders of the peoples. They have paralyzed the Security Council for a long time. They have not stopped the war in Syria, Libya, Yemen and Iraq

The cold attack launched by the Ukrainian winter several days ago cannot be resisted as the elements of cold resistance were destroyed mostly by the Russians. Thus winter, which was turned into a lethal and destructive weapon, will increase the immigration of most of the steadfast Ukrainians because they have lost the factors that enable them to stay rooted in their land. The war will increase in strength and breadth and may turn into a world war as a result of a mistake from here or there or adventurers will take advantage of the circumstance as is their habit to commit foolishness here or there.

The Ukrainian war is almost in its tenth month with no prospects for a solution

At this historical stage, humanity has turned into a victim of world leaders who build their glories on the shoulders of the peoples. They have paralyzed the Security Council for a long time. They have not stopped the war in Syria, Libya, Yemen and Iraq. Rather, they are allowing it to move to other geographical locations.

The Ukrainian war is almost in its tenth month with no prospects for a solution. Climate change will cause the world to sink or get burned. World leaders are unable to make a decision to save the world. There is no stable country except very few, if any, in the whole world. No one can answer the question: What to do?
