Respected Sir,

As the world seems terrorized due to the consistent nuclear threats from both Russia and the U.S., it is high time for the nations to take learning’s from the Cuban Missile crisis of 1962 to avert a nuclear escalation.

As the war has been grinding continuously for the last eight months with no immediate signs of even a ceasefire, U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin need to look back and dive into the expertise of John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev to find a lasting solution.

A contrasting factor between the Ukraine war and the Cuban Missile crisis is that the latter was a direct confrontation between the U.S. and the Soviet Union unlike the former where the actual conflict is between Ukraine and Russia. Ukraine’s growing inclination towards the West and its ambition of acquiring a NATO membership was an issue that could have been easily resolved through more frequent dialogues between the two nations had Mr. Putin not declared the special military operation. But the invasion elicited the intervention of the West which was waiting for such a thing to make Russia internationally weaker. This proved to be the last nail of the coffin for both the countries.

Russia’s annexation of the four key regions of Ukraine has inarguably fulfilled much of its objectives in the interim. So Mr. Putin’s nuclear threats makes no sense now and it will only provoke the West to put more sanctions. An immediate ceasefire, obeying of the Charter of the United Nations and dialogues are crucial to end both the war of words and weapons.
