The discord between these global superpowers (appertaining to the tension between US and Russia) has “deepened significantly” —since Russia’s incursion into Ukraine in February 2022. Russia and America’s opposing stances extend beyond Ukraine… encompassing key global issues: such as North Korea’s ballistic missile; North Korea’s nuclear endeavors; and political upheavals in Africa… this certainly, could heap more coals to the existing tension between US and Russia.
US Security Council Scuffles With Decisions That Could Heap More Coals To The Tension Between US And Russia
As the US Security Council scuffles with decisions (that could heap more coals to the existing tension between US and Russia)… Russia’s use of its “veto power” has come under scrutiny. In a recent episode… Russia vetoed the renewal of sanctions on Mali, leaving the US disappointed (that could heap more coals to the existing tension between US and Russia).
These sanctions (imposed in 2017) aimed to penalize individuals (just like Russia) undermining a 2015 peace agreement. The situation (appertaining to the tension between US and Russia) remains uncertain… as the sanctions (against Russia) approach their expiration.
