Should we get involved with Russia? Yes or No Reasons!

We have been learning about how the leader of Russia, Vladimir Putin, has cheated the rules and laws of his country. He has stayed in office for 17 years straight. As he had been Russia’s president for 8 years, then Russia’s PM for another 8 years, and then he became the President again! So, he could end up living the rest of his life switching between the two! He has NOT been following the rules, and has NOT been allowing his people to have Human Rights!

One example of a right being taken away in Russia is: The LGBT Right! Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender! These people should be able to love who they love, but in Russia they will be either arrested or killed by the police if they express their love.

I think that the UK should get more involved, by restricting trade between our country and Russia. Doing this will ensure that Russia will lose a lot of supplies. But this might only affect the poor people of the country, as the rich might be unaffected by it. Plus, we have already been restricting our trade with Russia! But nothings changed, and we might only cause 0% change in how Russia is already acting!

A reason for why I think this is that if we restrict our trading routes with Russia. Both of us might lose supplies, and then we mighty just be making the wrong people suffer in Russia. For a second opinion of mine, I suppose that we could raise prices dramatically so that ONLY Russia will be affected, as it will have to pay more money!

    I think that we should withdraw from buying Russian supplies even more although it could result in us not having gas or oil. I agree with you RavenTheRauthour as people should be able to love who they want to love.

      I don’t think we should get involved with Russia will probably result in a war. We cant expect a country with the population of 65.64 million (2016) to beat a country with the population 144.3 million (2016) in a war. Russia has advanced weapons to kill entire counties. Nuclear weapons would be nothing against our army of a couple bombs. We would be dead in seconds!!!

      • Thanks for your comment, Devil490. I’m really impressed that you’ve used statistics to back up your argument, well done!
        I’d like you to be curious; are there any other ways we could intervene in Russia, without starting a war?

      I’m glad you agree! And how do you feel about the rest of the rights?

    I do not think that we should get involved, since our gas and oil usally comes from Russia. It would be nice if we would but Russia has to much power, so if we try their is a big chance we would lose to them. We could do little things it could help but if we take it to far we could start a war!

    I think we should not get involved because it is just going to cause another fight between Russia and all the other countries.

    I agree with FeministUnicornNo1 because if we stop buying Russian supplies, we can threaten to never buy them again unless they stop this form of abuse towards people living in the Soviet’s territory.

    I think that we shouldn’t get involved because it might lead to world war 3.

    I don’t think we should get involved with Russia because we get a lot of supplies from them. Although they need help we cant do much as we are such a tiny country and we would lose against Russia. Us getting involved in Russia’s problem might be a bit of a downfall for England. Although what Putin is doing is disgusting, we should sit this one out. Let a bigger country go against them. Hopefully Putin is put down soon.

    Vladimir Putin Is cheating to gain power and is not keeping his promises. He is making new laws that are not fair on Russia but if we interfere with his business then he could cause cause civil war and his army is very powerful.

    I don’t think we shouldn’t get involved because it can cause a war and it might make the UK poor.

    I think we should get involved because then Russia will get more powerful and then eventually will take over the EU before anyone can stop them.

    I think we shouldn’t get involved with Russia as are oil comes from them and they could easily take that away and if we didn’t have oil we couldn’t get to school or any were else as petrol and diesel involves oil as well as this oil involves cooking

    • Thanks for your comment, Unicornvamp. You’ve shown good reasoning by backing up your opinion with reasons, well done!
      I’d like you to be very sceptical; if we didn’t have Russian oil, what would happen? Would we really not be able to use petrol? Remember that we get oil from lots of places.
      BNC members, Unicornvamp has brought up an important point. Would life become more difficult if we had a bad relationship with Russia?

    I think we shouldn’t get involved with Russia because if we do it will cause a giant dilemma and then it will probably create a problem which will resort to a giant argument. WE SHOULD NOT INTERVENE

    i think we shouldnt get involved in it because it could cause a war or a big argument and it will be rearly bad between our country and Russia so i dont think we should get involved.

    I believe we should get involved with Russia discreetly because if we were to attack or aggressively state Russia human right abuses then it would initiate the Russian government ,who are incredibly brutal, to do something which could be from doing nothing to attacking other countries. So if we were to involve ourselves with Russia discreetly then Russia will not need to take matters into their own hands and we would be protecting ourselves and most of the world and perhaps even convince Russia to have more respect their people and treat them with respect and fairness and also obey human rights.

    I think we should get involved because we can’t just leave people to be in danger just because they are gay. I feel that we should love who we want and express it without being killed or arrested. But, we need to be careful in how we get involved because it could lead to a war or Russia could takeover our country and we would not have human rights.

  19. In my opinion,I think we should not get involved because if we do the result would be starting a War.N0 country would be expected to beat a country with a population 144.3 million (2016) while we only have a population of 65.64 million.I have to say that Russia has way more advanced and well-made weapons then the UK. -Mag6

    If we get involved then we could start war and Russia is very powerful and we would have to pay money and Russia will stand out while we are rubbish. By beauty

  21. I believe we should get involved with Russia because if we start a war, our army would be prepared for this as the government would notify them about this.

    Cool 2 out!

  22. I believe that it is not a good idea to get into war because the population in England is massive and if we go to war the population will slightly die. I understand that we will eventually go to war but if we go to both the population will die even more.

    Should we challenge Russia more?
    I think we should challenge Russia more because it’s what’s right and we should always do that.Just because of money people don’t want to interfere with Russia but money can’t buy happiness and love can it?Even if you stand alone you should always stand up for what’s right.

    Should we challenge Russia more?
    I think we shouldn’t really get involved in Russias problems because we are Britain and we should think about what problems Britain is having.Also, why should we be interested in Russia’s money???it has nothing to do with our country.It is a big country and has loads of soldiers and I wouldn’t want to get involved.

    In my opinion, I think we should oust the Russian government , citizans do not have equal rights only the wealthy does and their is abuse happening with partnership and the police can’t get involved

    I think we should and shouldn’t get involved with Russia because if we do get involved, we will have a Great War on our hands, but also if we do,Russia will be different.And also if we don’t interfere with Russia we will be safe. LittleStar466

    I agree with the British MP because Russia signed agreements promising to look after human rights but now they aren’t looking after human rights and they are going against their agreement.

    Should we challenge Russia more?
    I do not believe in the intervention of the Russian government.True, human rights are not good there, but it is not our position to monitor what goes on in other countries.Russia is a very powerful country and has all the money to start a war with us – and most likely win it – if we raise an argument with them. Britain is too interested in Russia’s money, apparently we don’t have enough already which is an outright lie.Britain needs to focus on its own problems and not intervene in other governments.

    I think we should be involved because other country might don’t get human right. too. I agree with the human right campaigner. by Cici

    If we do get involved with Russia, it might leave to World War 3. If we do go into war with Russia, I feel Russia will win as the have more weapons. Also their problems doesn’t really affect the UK so I say we shouldn’t.

    We should not get involved;war could probably happen anyway. We should not risk our lives for the sake

    I agree, RavenTheRauthor, because if we don’t do something it could result in a total loss of equipment, but if we do something controllable and do something that will affect poor people of Russia, then maybe we should just be doing little things like restricting businesses and trading supplies back on forth, but we should do limited trades so as to not cause anything that will be fatal and cause disaster.

    Furthermore, I think we should resolve this problem by making the people of Russia gather up and let them state their opinions, and if they don’t know what’s going on then Vladimir Putin is just a Human-Rights abuser.

  35. Elaine Primary Academy Elaine Primary Academy

    We need to get involved but at the same time we do not because if we do we might loose cause they have more land and defense so it will likely be them to win and if we get involved we kind of have more people then them and we won world war 1 and 2 so it wont be hard but what if people from Germany take to many country and charge us because we will need all of Europe and they may not want to get involved. crazy kangaroo

  36. Streatham Wells Primary School Streatham Wells Primary School

    In my opinion I think the UK should not get involved with Russia because the UK rely on Russia for valuable assets such as oil. But if we did get involved with how Russia treats their citizens, we would need help from other countries because we can’t stand up to Russia on our own.
