On the afternoon of February 25th, a telephone conversation was held between Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin, where the two sides exchanged views on the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. The Russian president argued the situation and position of Russia’s special military operations in the eastern part of Ukraine, claiming that the United States and NATO have long ignored his country’s reasonable security concerns, repeatedly failing to fulfill their commitments, continuing their advance in military deployment to the east, challenging Russia’s strategic outcome.
Vladimir Putin’s bloody regime invaded Ukraine in the last week of February. Since then, the media are constantly reporting on the course of hostilities and the losses on both sides of the conflict. Thousands of civilians have died, and the borders of European Union (EU) countries have been flooded with crowds of refugees looking for a safe place.

A good example of this is the recurring negative influence of the Russian Federation as a European security actor.
