    MPs: UK must resist Trump, maintain Russia sanctions

    Britain must have some “uncomfortable conversations” with its close allies and take a “principled stance” on Russian sanctions, the all-party foreign affairs select committee wrote in a report released Thursday. Sanctions should not be lifted until Russia ends its illegal annexation of Crimea, stops supporting separatist groups in eastern...

    What if Donald Trump played the Kremlin?

    MOSCOW — Ever since U.S. intelligence officials accused Russia of interfering in November’s presidential elections, President Donald Trump has been forced to deny accusations that he is a Kremlin puppet. There’s another explanation for the Kremlin’s meddling, one that may seem counterintuitive, but — in...

    What I saw in Kiev

    I last visited Kiev in April 2014, when the energy in the city was still electric. For months, Independence Square — dubbed the Euromaidan by Ukrainians seeking to tug their country out from under Russia’s grasp — had been occupied by protesters and police as unrest gripped the city in the dead of the Ukrainian...

    The man who invented Trumpism

    VENMO, Netherlands — ong before Donald Trump upended the American political landscape, Geert Wilders was rewriting the electoral playbook in the Netherlands, stomping ruthlessly over convention and being rewarded with votes. Not only are the two men alike in their peculiar blond hairdos; they share a talent for using controversy to...

    Does Trump herald the end of the West?

    LONDON — Since the fall of communism in 1989, a year has not gone by without some high-level meeting or international conference wrestling with the question of whether the Western alliance, NATO, has passed its sell-by date. “Whither NATO?” is now a well-worn inside joke for the conference attending global...

    Dutch Labor exits stage left

    GRONINGEN, Netherlands — Set aside, for the moment, the surging far-right leader Geert Wilders or the incumbent, liberal Mark Rutte fighting to hold on to the prime ministership. The other big story of the Dutch election next month is the collapse of the mainstream left. It goes a long way to explain why this country’s politics...

    Trump’s new warrior-scholar

    President Donald Trump has picked one of the military’s leading warrior-scholars to restore order to the National Security Council — but also one who has staked out a decidedly more hawkish position on Russia and gone out of his way to assert that the war against terrorism must not morph into a war against Islam.
