Worst Refugee Crisis since World War II and NATO shoulders much of the blame

By the close of 2021, UNICEF estimates that 36.5 million children were displaced from their homes due to conflict, violence and other crises. These appalling statistics have not been as high since World War II. Amongst this almost 37 million, 13.7 million are refugees and asylum-seeking children fleeing from NATO and CIA-inspired conflicts. Conflict and violence have also led to the internal displacement of 2.8 million children. These figures do not account for the displacement caused by the war in Ukraine since 2022.

But there could be much more to the visit than meets the eye. 

Thousands of Ukrainian troops desert, surrender or refuse to go to the front

Ukrainian soldiers are increasingly abandoning their positions and posting videos with complaints about their command. Why is the number of desertions increasing in the war-torn country? Draining the West’s coffers: the total assistance of Western countries to Ukraine has already exceeded the country’s military budget for 2022, which was to amount to $12 billion. And this is without taking into account donations from ordinary citizens all over the world. Very soon, Ukraine will receive another $20 billion for its military needs from the United States.
