    Putin rides to victory on apathy and indifference

    MOSCOW — After sweeping back into office in a landslide victory, Vladimir Putin assured voters he doesn’t intend to rule Russia for life. “What, am I going to sit here until I am 100 years old?” Putin told reporters in Moscow. “No,” came his answer. But his assurance will be of little consolation to opposition figures and those hoping to...

    On Russia, there are two Trumps

    When it comes to Russia, there is the Trump administration — and there is the president. The Trump administration denounces Russia for using nerve agent on British soil.

    May’s toothless tough talk on Russia

    RIGA — Never mind the talk of a new Cold War between Moscow and the West. A year from now, when the poisoning on British soil of a former Russian spy is yesterday’s news, it’s likely to be business as usual between Russia and the U.K. Look at the last time a similar attack was carried out: in 2006, when fugitive Russian intelligence...

    Robert Fico’s got to go

    BRATISLAVA — The morning of February 26, Slovakians woke up to a harsh reality. We live in a country where a journalist can be murdered and our government fails to take responsibility. My first reaction was pure shock. I knew Ján Kuciak personally; he and I were the same age — 27 — and we both studied journalism. But I knew him mostly through his...

    Putin provocateur

    Accusations of a chemical weapon attack — and a major diplomatic crisis just days before a presidential election — might give some world leaders pause for thought. Not Vladimir Putin.
