    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...

    MEPs approve Brexit resolution by large majority

    MEPs voted 544 to 110 in favor of a resolution setting out a position on Brexit that makes clear the U.K. cannot receive the same benefits from the EU when it is no longer a member.

    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.

    U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Monday slammed Russia over an alleged nerve agent attack in Britain — going further than the White House in directly calling out the Kremlin as “an irresponsible force of instability in the world.” Tillerson said the United States will stand “in solidarity” with the United Kingdom and would coordinate its...

    NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Monday the alliance is in contact with the U.K. about the nerve agent attack on a former Russian double agent, amid speculation that the alliance could invoke its collective defense clause if Russia is found responsible.

    Trade, spies and the perils of going it alone

    At risk of accusations of “talking down Britain,” it nevertheless seems fair to observe that this was a week that highlighted the risks inherent in striking out alone in the world. First, there was Trump and his tariffs. Despite assertions from Liam Fox that the U.K. will be seeking an exemption, it is not clear how this can be squared with the...
