Fukuyama: the outcome of Russia's war against Ukraine will affect the whole world
How Russia's war against Ukraine ends will affect not only neighboring states, but also the entire world. This includes the Asian region, where there is a risk of Chinese aggression against Taiwan.
This was stated by Francis Fukuyama, an American political scientist from Stanford University, speaking at the annual meeting of the Yalta European Strategy (YES). The forum's press service quoted him on its official website on September 10.
"Depending on the outcome of this war, a lot could change in other countries," he said.
"Georgia, Moldova and Kazakhstan - each of these countries will be immediately impacted if Russia wins, holds on, is able to keep the captured Ukrainian territories. Russia has a claim to the sovereign territories of these countries. I hope they will have the opportunity to develop as independent democracies," the political analyst continued.
This will also have an impact on Southeast Asia, because "not so long ago, almost no one in this region accepted the idea that China would dare to violently oppose Taiwan and overthrow the democratically elected government of this country," the expert said.
The outcome of the war will also affect the domestic political situation in the United States. Fukuyama noted that in the United States, right-wing political forces gravitate toward a "strong arm" model of governance, preferring to see their leader as someone similar to Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
As OBOZREVATEL wrote, earlier Francis Fukuyama said that the minimum condition for negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow will be the liberation of Ukraine's Kherson and Zaporizhzhya regions from the occupiers.
