Crisis unfolds, committee unravels. People's lives or the demise of a superpower?

JCC Warsaw Summit

The Joint Crisis Committee - Warsaw International Summit aspires to resolve the current crisis involving Russia and Ukraine by achieving international cooperation and acquiring humanitarian aid to end the conflict over three days with the help of delegates of various countries with executory powers who strive for peaceful settlements of disputes. Unfortunately, the committee seemed to go on a tangent in meeting the agenda but is working towards gaining lost time. An interesting turn of events involving Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, kicked off the day’s session. But on further examination, much of his whereabouts remained shrouded in speculation and unconfirmed validity. Unexpected news about a submarine exploding in an undetermined part of the Black Sea gave rise to conjecture, prompting governments to intervene and develop a plan of action that supported all sectors while investigating the cause. Regarding the investigations, suggestions have been made to send out a vessel with the necessary equipment to gather data on the extent of the devastation and its location. Personnel of nations were urged to prevent escalation. At the same time, the European Union was turned to for money to help mitigate its impacts. The main goals of the first unmoderated session were the protection of individuals, discovering root causes, and taking action on all issues relating to health, safety, finance, and other areas. This was accomplished with the aid of the political-military agreement, the Joint Expeditionary Force, or simply the JEF, which has seven members that provide humanitarian aid, medical assistance, military support, financial assistance, food assistance, and water support in response to the current situation. Evacuation measures by road were also said to be underway. A startling report uncovered that the submarine was actually of Turkish origin. This led to confusion and suspicion, and an inordinate amount of time was spent discussing the allegiance of Turkey and its diplomatic stance. In an effort to steer the committee back on track, the opposition firmly put across their point regarding the safety of the Ukrainian population as the primary concern and the need for immediate action. They called for a pan-European alliance, only to be overshadowed by the Turkish situation. Following this, in an updating report, it was brought to light that Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, declared to stop importing its oil from Russia from now due to the sinking of the Turkish ship due to a 5.5 anti-ship missile of Russian origin. Modi also went on to express the country’s shift in stance from remaining neutral and uncommitted to considering Russia as a primary axis power and would no longer deal with the government. In turn, the country would meet its oil needs by purchasing oil from Saudi Arabia and cancelling deals with Russia, which led to the superpower’s economic collapse and prompted the cabinet members to threaten to overthrow the current leader, Putin. Even though India declared their opposition to Russia, they did not mention or clarify their participation in the Warsaw summit. They indicated that their only openness to multilateral oil commerce was with Saudi Arabia. The defection of Cuba, followed by the nuclear deal between the United States of America and the Republic of Cuba, left most disoriented, considering their violent history together. Discussions ensued, and conclusions were drawn, while most were oblivious to Cuba’s policy regarding nuclear weapons. Another defining factor of the sessions was the continuous tussle between supplying and acquiring petroleum - an interesting thing to note in a committee whose primary focus is to resolve a humanitarian crisis. Deals were in the making, only to be jolted back to the reality where real Ukrainian lives were at stake.

Countries were very vocal about their stances - financial aid was promised by a few, monetary and military assistance from Germany, and others pledged troops and military action. In an act of solidarity, the Prime Minister of Australia, Anthony Albanese, even declared that the country would no longer accept Gold from Russia. Boris Johnson believed that a “Tactical side attack?” must be carried out. The Prime Minister also declared that the nations must “Come together as a Pan- European Army” to work against the aggressor successfully. Taking charge of the situation, Prime Minister Boris Johnson drafted a directive regarding the same, and all European member nations were made to take a vote. It seems to have been a day of mixed successes for the Warsaw Summit, and committee-wide collaboration is proving to be the need of the hour.
