From the people of my country, they say like this:

Ukraine: Putin/Russia is the invader, Nato/US are everything, they will protect us.
Putin: Lenin to Ukraine is like Ho Chi Minh to Vietnam. Destroying Lenin statue is unforgivable, they need to be taught a lesson.

The real reason: Ukraine shares the border with Russia, but they severed the bond with Russia, followed US/Nato. If Nato/US attack Ukraine, Russia will defend them. But if Russia attack Ukraine, no one will defend them. When they join Nato, US will have the right to put their army at Ukraine, it's very near Moscow - a big threat to Russia. As a leader, Putin must act to protect Russia.
