Conflict is not resolved through negotiations; rather, it is continued. They, therefore rarely can accomplish more than what can be done militarily. The strategic issues that arise during negotiations are new in Russia-Ukraine War. If not, what are the goals of the West in the long run, given that Putin is still in power and that Russia will accept no settlement short of Ukrainian capitulation?
Is the West prepared for the potential brutal effects of Russian control in Ukraine? Does the West believe that sparing Ukrainian lives by allowing them to live under Russian rule is a sacrifice? The criminals hired by the Wagner Group are likely to remain in Ukraine as part of the occupation forces because Russia does not want to send them back, which will have terrible effects on the local population.
This raises new concerns about what will happen to the displaced civilians and soldiers from Ukraine. There have been many instances in history where Ukrainian soldiers have been evacuated and then enlisted in Western armies. They could draw on their combat experience and earn money through military service. Does the West encourage or suppress any ongoing resistance movement in Ukraine?
How soon reconstruction could begin in Ukraine?
All probabilities revolve around a community’s vulnerability to recover from and rebuild after the war territorial control, temporal ideas, and timelines along which risk a disaster progression. Disasters and the production of risk are products of a long temporal horizon.
Slow disaster is what academics like Scott Knowles refer to a disaster does not occur suddenly and affects a community and its residents are at risk of danger. Such exposure can be as simple to spot as during a natural disaster.
A flood is caused by a rainstorm and is either prevented or mitigated by homes when it occurs.
due to persistent societal decisions regarding infrastructure development and the construction of housing. Exposure to the risk of armed conflict can manifest itself less immediately. Unexploded ordnance has the potential to hurt citizens long after peace has been achieved, despite being equally slow.
Families can be divided across formerly open but now militarized borders, or they can be negotiated.
In the extended timeline, that is when the disaster ends, and recovery starts accompanying the idea that disasters start with the production of long-lasting.

According to disaster scholarship, accepting the involves acknowledging this unevenly paced, nonlinear process “of remaking and making lives livable.”
The significance of slower recovery methods as being crucial. Governments and community leaders frequently demand preparedness and recovery decisions should be made with care and a comprehensive understanding of a but on much shorter time frames getting back what society needs. Thus, there is a natural conflict between haste and thought utilizing prompt, careful action within the context of extensive timeframes. actors in such a situation must be especially aware of the risk-related causal pathways when under stress.
“Conducting the second Rapid Damage and Needs Assessment is an important element in Ukraine’s reconstruction strategy. We are grateful to the World Bank for an up-to-date and thorough analysis, which will become an important tool for us and our partners in the implementation of recovery projects – recovery that has already begun. Energy infrastructure, housing, critical infrastructure, economy and humanitarian demining are our five priorities for this year. Part of the reconstruction work has already been done, and I am grateful to our partners from the EU, the USA, and the World Bank. The amount of damage and recovery needs currently does not include data on the loss of infrastructure, housing and businesses in the occupied territories. When the defense forces release them, we expect that the data will be supplemented, and the Government will immediately begin restoration work in these territories,”said Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal.

On the other hand, far from Russia Ukraine War, disaster studies show instances of particularly deliberate and slow recovery in places like Japan, recovery with a focus on speed in places like Turkey, and a successful balance between the two in countries like Chile. There isn’t, as evidenced by that research a pace that considers recovery needs and goals and is, therefore, always the correct answer.
