The President of Ukraine is seeking more military support from the UK and western allies.
Ukraine is asking for aircrafts that will be able to reach further into Russia.
The United States has committed to sending missiles but not the range that Ukraine has requested.
The alliance between Ukraine and the West has already provoked Russia.
This comes at a time when Russia has made recent advances with troops approaching further into occupied territories.
The public acknowledgment of the alliance also adds fuel to the fire as the president of Ukraine travels throughout Europe and is in talks about joining the European Union which would establish the country as an independent state which would infuriate Russia even more.
With all of the international relations and communications forming there should also be room for mediation, peace talks, and for conflict resolution.
