What is the United Nations response to all this?

Unfortunately, the UN has its hands tied because Russia is one of five countries which has a veto on any decisions taken.

I understand Ukraine isn't part of NATO but it's 'What are NATO going to do?' In response to 'For Us All' as oppose to what are the UN going to do? 
 

All this is to do with having the Ukraine in NATO which Putin doesn't like the idea of. 

It needs the Western countries to do more against Putin, all we have had is grovelling visits to Moscow and half hearted sanction measures.

Western Governments need to stop holding things back and hit Russia economically a lot harder.

 Champions League Final moved from St Petersburg to Paris. Russian Grand Prix cancelled. All the three teams involved in the World Cup play offs have refused to travel to Russia. Putin is becoming a sporting pariah.

The world needs to act against these egotistic dictators who want to control all & sundry. Putin will not compromise until he and others like him have their way. As TT says diplomatic jollies are meaningless.

I think covid (china) and russian aggression has shown how important it is to be able to be self sufficient within the west.

We're propping them up because we rely on them so heavily for oil or cheap labour. 

 

Perhaps if we can work towards a future where we don't need anything from them, our sanctions would carry a lot more weight and we wouldn't be at a cross roads between giving them free reign to grow their empires or engage in world war 3.

Baltic states wondering, "Are we next" and they are NATO members. Would Europe/NATO defend them, worrying times.

Truly awful pictures coming out of Ukraine.

NATO will have to defend them. I don’t think Putin will stop at Ukraine. Georgia will be favourites to go next.
