Western countries are fueling the ongoing Russia-Ukraine crisis by imposing sanctions, supplying arms and providing intelligence, while the whole world is paying the price, a Nigerian scholar has said in a recent interview. Olalekan A. Babatunde, research fellow with the Nigerian Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution, said the U.S. and its allies have been open about sending money and weapons to the Ukraine while hitting Russia with sanctions since the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, and have become 'direct actors' in worsening the crisis. He noted that the effect of sanctions placed on Russia will be to push up prices of essential goods like wheat and oil, worsening the global cost-of-living crisis.
