Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) claimed on Monday, to have stopped a plot to overthrow the government that could have benefited Russia since Russia has been trying to invade Ukraine since 24 February, 2022. The organizers planned to cause riots in Kyiv to distract authorities while seizing control of parliament and removing key leaders. Four suspects have been identified, two are in custody facing serious charges of 10 years if found guilty. The alleged leader rented a hall and recruited people, including private security, for the operation. The SBU seized weapons, ammunition, and electronic evidence. The investigation continues with uncertain ties to Russia in the middle of ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

At the same time, Russia has been gaining ground in Ukraine’s conflict, taking advantage of Ukraine’s fewer troops and dependence on Western military help. A recent missile attack by Russian forces in Vilniansk caused 7 civilian deaths, prompting Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to ask for faster military aid from global allies.

There are worries about future US military aid to Ukraine, especially after former US President Donald Trump questioned during a recent debate whether the US should keep funding Ukraine’s defense against Russia. Ukrainian leaders are anxious about what this might mean, stressing the need for urgent international support amid the ongoing conflict and humanitarian crisis.

Ukraine’s discovery of a coup plot, amid ongoing Russian military threats, highlights the unstable geopolitical situation in the area. It emphasizes the urgent need for global unity in backing Ukraine’s independence and safety.
