One of the points where it can start a Third world war, is Ukraine.
About this in his article for The National Interest says the Professor at the army war College, USA Robert Farley, reports Glavred.
According to the author, the incident in the Kerch Strait caused an increase of tension in the region. Farley notes that Russia is likely not interested in “violation of the status quo” before the elections in Ukraine in 2019, because they can introduce ambiguity in the situation.
The article said that given the ongoing tensions between the US and Russia, “even a small shock can destroy the precarious balance prevailing in the region over the past few years.”
“Hot” regions, indicates Farley, are also the South China sea, the Persian Gulf and the Korean Peninsula.
We will remind, on November 25, Russian border guards fired on and detained in the Kerch Strait three Ukrainian ship, two armored artillery boats “Berdyansk” and “Nikopol”, as well as inshore tug “Yana Kapu”, which, going from Odessa to Mariupol, tried to go to the Russian territorial waters through the Kerch Strait allegedly without prior notice.
Kiev argues that the court committed a planned transition, and the Russian side was talking about. As a result of collision six Ukrainian servicemen got wounds.
