IMO A

In B. "finding" is the issue here. Here nations are being copared to individuals and nations can find themselves locked into difficult situations. "finding" modifies individuals and suggests that individuals find themselves in difficult situations.

the use of a semicolon requires that the second part be a complete sentence.

if you read it outloud, you will realize that it is not a complete sentence. "finding" should be "find"
nations, just as individuals, finding themselves locked into difficult positions, unable to back down

If I am right, there ought to be an independent clause after semi colon (;).
my question is, ' Is, in A, for nations, like individuals, can find an independent clause? If yes, then what role is for playing here?'

I think it is A because "Crises" plural will need "result" not "results"

A is better.
do + verb (verb should be in infinite form) whether Subject is singlular or plural)

Crises ..do result
Crisis .. do result
both are correct.
