    Let Czar Putin overextend himself

    Vladimir Putin says he isn’t a czar, but increasingly he’s behaving like one. So why not let him go the way of Russia’s last czar—and sink himself by overextending himself militarily? Despite the risk that a weak or dithering response by the West to Putin’s new advance into Syria will only encourage the hardliners around...

    Putin’s new world order

    The president of Russia uses a Putin-speak in his speeches that we must parse word for word, in our own best interests.

    Obama and Putin: That was awkward

    An awkward toast, sideways glances, a stiff handshake. Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin aren’t just geostrategic rivals. They are two guys who simply don’t like each other. That much seemed clear after Monday’s action at the United Nations in New York, where Obama and Putin sat uncomfortably together at a lunch, then met...

    KIEV — The Mystetskyi Arsenal is an imposing building that dominates Lavrska street in the center of Ukraine’s capital city. A former weapons arsenal built by Catherine the Great, it now houses a museum. But earlier this month it was the site of something more politicized even than Ukrainian art: the annual Yalta European Strategy (YES)...

    Russia plays the Polish history card

    WARSAW — It’s usually not difficult for a Russian to cause outrage in Poland by taking a poke at that proud but prickly country’s history — and that seems to be what Moscow’s ambassador in Warsaw may have hoped to do by suggesting that Poland bore some of the responsibility for starting World War II. What’s more surprising...
