    Litvinenko Inquiry: Pursuing populism at the expense of foreign policy?

    Many of the popular responses to the Litvinenko Inquiry — released nearly a decade after the poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko in 2006 with polonium, probably by former agents of the Russian FSB — have been inane, poorly informed, and wildly speculative. Some have taken the line that having killed off Russian democracy, Vladimir Putin should be...

    Bypassing Russia, Ukraine Becomes Another “Silk Road” Terminus

    In Ukraine, Putin Tries to Cash In Before Luck Runs Out

    Ukraine has become the object of high-stakes diplomacy. This does not mean that fighting has stopped—quite the opposite.

    Not much remains of the once vibrant American left-wing. Among the brainwashed remnants there is such a hatred of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan that the commitment of these two presidents to ending dangerous military rivalries is unrecognized.

    Decentralization, special status, and federalism. These terms are three different things, although they are often mistakenly substituted one for another, and some people think one term means another in Ukraine today.The decentralization debate is heating up again as Ukraine faces a legal deadline to pass a constitutional amendment that gives the...
