    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...

    Republicans round on Obama’s NATO choice

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration’s choice to fill the number-two slot at NATO in Brussels is drawing fierce opposition — but not from allies in Europe or Canada.

    Europe draws red lines on Turkey migration deal

    The EU is taking a tough line with Turkey on a controversial migration deal, with many of Ankara’s demands being pushed back or downright ignored.

    Did Putin once again outfox Obama?

    Vladimir Putin’s announcement on Monday that Russia will begin pulling out of Syria appeared to take the White House by surprise, and revived concerns that the Russian leader is outmaneuvering Barack Obama.

    Piotr Gliński: Poland’s anti-gay green

    WARSAW — Polish Deputy Prime Minister and Culture Minister Piotr Gliński is a one-time Green party activist and vegetarian. This biography makes him something of a strange fit in a right-wing government where the foreign minister railed against “a world made up of cyclists and vegetarians, who only use renewable energy and who battle all signs of...

    Yes for Ukraine, win for Europe

    KIEV — Ukrainians were surprised to learn about the Dutch referendum on the European Union’s association agreement with Ukraine: Why had the issue touched a nerve in the Netherlands? But the vote is not really about Ukraine — it’s about distrust of national politics and the country’s growing Euroskeptic sentiment. The...
