    Russia accuses Latvia of ‘blatant censorship’ after Sputnik news site is shut down

    A new skirmish in the European Union’s “information war” with Russia broke out Tuesday when Latvia shut down a local version of Sputnik, the Kremlin-backed news agency. Russia’s foreign ministry condemned the move as “blatant censorship.” Sputnik said Wednesday it had resumed providing news for Latvian audiences using a .com Internet...

    We need to stop blaming ourselves for Russia’s aggression

    Tony Brenton’s recent piece (“Don’t wait for Russia to take the first step,” March 20) makes the flawed argument that Russia’s actions in Ukraine were motivated by legitimate security concerns, and a response to provocations from the West. But that is a dangerous line of thinking. While we can acknowledge that Russia has a point...

    What the anti-Brexit camp feared most: a terrorist attack

    LONDON — When Theresa May updated the House of Commons on Wednesday on Britain’s response to the horrific events in Brussels, there was little mention of the European Union referendum.

    Portugal to Syrians: come West

    LISBON, Portugal — Plenty of European leaders have a problem with refugees, but António Costa’s is unusual: the Portuguese prime minister can’t get enough of them. Costa has unilaterally more than doubled the quota allocated to Portugal under a European Union program to relocate refugees languishing in Italy and Greece. The 10,000...

    Don’t wait for Russia to take the first step

    An air of fatalism has overtaken relations with Russia. Western sanctions and the intransigent Russian response have produced a downward spiral. Experts on both sides now anticipate a long cold spell. The need to reverse the slide towards a new Cold War has never been more urgent. The Pentagon has proposed a quadrupling of U.S. military...

    The Norwegian TV series that’s enraged the Kremlin

    Okkupert (“Occupied”), the most expensive Norwegian television show in history, never mentions the word “quisling.” And yet its premise — a Russian occupation of Norway — evokes Vidkun Quisling’s Nazi collaborationist government and is permeated with the still unshakable trauma of that era. Between 1942 and 1945, Quisling’s puppet...
