The fight for Ukraine has also been going on for years (i.e. Orange Revolution) and is not just a recent event.

International treaties forbid countries from enriching uranium to 20% or higher, since that type of enrichment is considered too high for civilian usage and indicates it could be for military purposes. Continue reading
