Russia has a history of sending ethnic Russians into adjacent regions and then using these new residents as an excuse to include these regions into the Motherland.
Well, I anticipated 2024 likely to be interesting with US presidential election but did not anticipate France considering fighting alongside Ukraine against Russia -
  • French President Emmanuel Macron reaffirmed that he'd consider sending French troops to Ukraine and spelled out the conditions in which that could take place.
  • "I'm not ruling anything out, because we are facing someone who is not ruling anything out," Macron said NATO troops could be deployed to help defend Ukraine.
  • "We have undoubtedly been too hesitant by defining the limits of our action to someone who no longer has any and who is the aggressor,"
  • He is considering sending French troops to Ukraine "if the Russians were to break through the front lines, if there were a Ukrainian request, which is not the case today."
This means a NATO country could enter a war with Russia triggering involvement of other NATO countries.

Things could get real interesting real fast.

And just like WWII, Britain and France could be fighting side by side again -
  • Russia warned if British weapons were used by Ukraine to strike Russian territory then Moscow could hit back at British military installations and equipment both inside Ukraine and elsewhere
  • Foreign Secretary David Cameron said Ukraine had the right to use British weapons to strike Russia
  • Russia's foreign ministry said Cameron's remarks recognized that Britain was now de facto a part of the conflict against Russia and in response to Ukrainian attacks on Russian territory with British weapons, any British military facilities and equipment on the territory of Ukraine and abroad" could be targeted
  • Cameron, during a visit to Kyiv last week, told Reuters that Ukraine had a right to use the weapons provided by Britain to strike targets inside Russia, and that it was up to Kyiv whether or not to do so.

If Russia attacks any NATO nation then it had attacked all of NATO.
-And does Russia's reasoning allow us to attack North Korea, Chins and Iran, since they are all supplying weapons to this conflict as well as being used in attacks on international shipping?
