Amazon Quiz (March 11, 2022): Which country in Europe has become a flashpoint, facing a risk of invasion by Russian troops?





Answer: Ukraine

After several weeks of simmering tensions, Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022, in what President Vladimir Putin described as a special operation to “denazify” the eastern European country. 

That ‘operation’ has since turned out to be a full-scale invasion and Russia has laid siege to the capital, Kyiv, and major cities of strategic importance such as Odessa and Mariupol. Ukrainians, however, have managed to hold off the Russian invasion thus far, but President Volodymyr Zelensky has appealed for help from the West to help fight the invaders. Thousands of foreign fighters have also travelled to Ukraine to join in its defence, and the increasingly long-drawn nature of what was perhaps expected to be a quick campaign has left some in Moscow wondering whether the invasion of Ukraine was botched.
