Does Russia have an unwillingness to reduce tension with Ukraine?

2:51

(CNN Spanish) --

Moscow is opposed to NATO's Atlantic Alliance continuing to expand in eastern Europe and Russia is concentrating troops on its border with Ukraine.

They fear a new invasion, a war.

And while Russia tries to curb US influence in Europe, Moscow is not ruling out the possibility of extending its own influence with military infrastructures in places outside Europe.

For example, in…Latin America.

This is the topic that José Levy addresses in this new episode of the CNN

Global Challenges

podcast .

The alarms have been unleashed these days, with force, after Russia's urgent talks with the United States and its allies.

  • OPINION |

    No to war for Ukraine

Moscow is adamantly opposed to the possibility of NATO's Atlantic Alliance continuing to expand in eastern Europe and Russia concentrating troops on its border with Ukraine.

There is fear of a new invasion, of a war, which could have serious global consequences.

And while Russia tries to curb US influence in Europe, Moscow is not ruling out the possibility of extending its own influence with military infrastructures in places outside Europe.

For example, in…Latin America.

Specifically in countries like Venezuela or Cuba.

Is the world going back to the era where military spheres of influence become key?

Greetings… this is José Levy speaking to you in a new episode of the CNN Global Challenges podcast.

The fears, the warnings in both directions, are beginning to recall the dreaded Cold War that ended three decades ago with the end of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact.

Then, more than thirty years ago, the fear was of a full-scale nuclear war that neither Washington nor Moscow would be able to prevent.

But now worrying expressions are being heard again, specifically in the face of the possibility that Russia will act again as it did eight years ago and, once again, invade Ukraine.

After the 2014 conflict, Moscow took control of the strategic Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea, an invasion rejected by the international community and which received sanctions from the United States and the European Union, after a controversial referendum in Crimea where it won the annexation to Russia.

Now the Russian strategy is one of strategic ambiguity.

On the one hand, they assure that they do not plan to advance with an invasion, but on the other they concentrated 100,000 soldiers or more on the border with their neighbor to the south and even began a military exercise in that area, just as negotiations with the NATO.

The demands of this Atlantic Alliance and the United States to de-escalate the situation and withdraw its troops from the area were vigorously rejected by Moscow, where they say that no one is going to give them orders on where to station their troops within their own sovereign territory.
