Trump appears to be ignorant of the ongoing situation in the Ukraine and Russia's involvement in the international conflict.
During a formal meeting in New York, President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed their views on Syria and Ukraine with Obama expressing his willingness to work with Russia to resolve the Syrian crisis.
Putin is attempting to draw Egypt into a common front against terrorism. The two have some common economic interests, as well. Russia is offering to build Egypt a nuclear power plant, and Egypt is offering Russia some free trade zones along the refurbished Suez Canal.
Putin’s strategy is to "reconstitute the Old Russian Empire" and what remains of Ukraine's territorial integrity is threatening the overall peace in Europe. It seems the crisis will not end until Putin is stopped. So who will stop him?
