WHAT DOES PROXY CONFLICT MEAN IN ENGLISH?
A proxy war is a conflict between third parties fighting on the behalf of more powerful parties. Proxy wars have also been fought alongside full-scale conflicts. It is almost impossible to have a pure proxy war, as the groups fighting for a certain nation usually have their own interests, which can diverge from those of their patron. Typically proxy wars function best during cold wars, as they become a necessity in conducting armed conflict between at least two belligerents while continuing cold warfare.
