Abstract

This study examined the causes and effects of Russia - Ukraine war; the study showed that armed conflict in eastern Ukraine erupted in early 2014 following Russia’s annexation of Crimea. The study being a qualitative type, it’s employed historical method of data collection and adopted Eco - Violence theory as its theoretical framework. The current conflict has severely strained U.S - Russia relations and increased the risk of a wider European conflict. Tensions are likely to increase between Russia and neighboring NATO member countries that would likely involve the United State due to alliance and security commitments. Additionally, the conflict in Ukraine will have broader ramifications for future cooperation on critical issues like arms control, cyber security, nuclear non - proliferation, energy, security, counter - terrorism among others. The study recommends among others that all countries should keep engaging in multilateral discussions to address urgent global food, energy and financial issues. Delays in collective actions will exacerbate already troubling prospects of the world economy.
