Russia annexed Crimea in 2014, supports existing separatists in east Ukraine and drifted into the Syrian conflict last year. China remains on a land and island reformation wave of construction on the South China Sea.
Western nations - including the United States(US), the United Kingdom(UK), France, Italy, Germany and others, continue to work toward the resolution of conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen, Ukraine and elsewhere including the fight against extremism and terrorism. Moreover, western nations continue to work to fend off famine in Ethiopia and on the horn of Africa, starvation in the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Sudan, Yemen and in many other locations.
Yet, strangely among all these events is the fact that historical abusers of human rights, namely China and Russia, have added territory to their causes, while western defenders of human rights have remained engulfed in conflict resolution and humanitarian programs to assist humanity on each continent.
