Many people in Ukraine are terrified and praying that the economy won’t get worse. Many are even leaving Ukraine to go to another country for safety.No country is going to help Ukraine fight Russia because Ukraine is not part of NATO. NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) is a “military alliance formed in 1949 by 12 countries, including the US, Canada, the UK, and France”. This means that members agree to one anotherś aid in the event of an armed attack against one member state. If country leaders decide to help Ukraine, there could be an escalation which would mean a bigger war with a possibility of it being WW3. This is why countries are not helping Ukraine to also protect their people and not make things worse. If Russia tried to enter countries in NATO, then that’s when other countries will have to interfere since they are willing to defend them.
