The inspiration for writing the article was a fascination with physics and the understanding that transferring force to political science should not occur by establishing appropriate rules. The variable referred to in its original form is governed by specific laws, and so it should be in all sciences that adopt this concept. The determination of the rules of force must be done by defining the problem. The article will be an attempt to answer the interdisciplinary trend and is more an attempt to answer the question of what exactly is «force» and how to define it. By discussing the definition of force, the article attempts to understand how the crisis between Ukraine and Russia may evolve. It is an attempt to transfer the concept of force to the indicated case study.
