      What the West Owes Ukraine

      What the West Owes Ukraine

      Ukraine may not be grabbing as many headlines now as it did a year ago, but the crisis there is far from over. Ultimately, what Ukraine needs is to escape the old Soviet order – and, for that, it needs significantly more Western help than it is getting. …read more Source: Project Syndicate (Czech...

      Overcoming the Ukraine Crisis

      The crisis in Ukraine is one of the gravest threats to global order in the past quarter-century, potentially involving nuclear-armed powers whose collective military spending amounts to two-thirds of the global total. The West should take the lead with a plan of action to avoid being trapped by a sudden escalation of the conflict. …read...

      Last Chance for Ukraine and Europe

      Ukraine has reached a critical point in its survival struggle; but so, too, has the European Union. And the line beyond which all possible scenarios worsen – for Ukraine and the EU alike – may be just days or weeks away. …read more Source: Project Syndicate (Czech...

      The Battle for Russia

      The Battle for Russia

      The tragedy of Russia is that it poses as great a threat to itself as it does to its neighbors. As Europe faces off with Russian President Vladimir Putin over Ukraine, a larger and ultimately more important battle is taking place within Russia itself, one that pits the country’s rich culture against the cruel mendacity of its politics....

      From Munich to Kyiv

      As many as 50,000 Ukrainians and Russians may have died so far in Russia’s war against Ukraine, with almost two million expelled from their homes. Yet the leaders of the democratic West refer to Russia’s aggression on the territory of a foreign state in a type of Orwellian newspeak. …read more Source: Project Syndicate (Czech...

      Taking On Revisionist Russia

      Taking On Revisionist Russia

      The struggle for influence in Ukraine is a game that Russian President Vladimir Putin cannot afford to lose. Since gaining the upper hand with the annexation of Crimea, he has been shrewdly forcing a divided and risk-averse West to choose between war and accommodation. …read more Source: Project Syndicate (Czech...

      Angela Merkel’s Moment of Truth

      In the last two weeks, Germany and its chancellor, Angela Merkel, were at the heart of efforts to achieve a diplomatic resolution to the two crises confronting Europe – in Ukraine and Greece. This is a new role for Germany, and the country is not yet accustomed to it. …read more Source: Project...

      The Ukrainian School of War

      The ongoing turmoil in Ukraine has frequently been compared to the Yugoslav crisis of the early 1990s – and, indeed, there are many similarities. But, when it comes to understanding why, after a year of increasingly brutal fighting, a resolution seems so remote, the differences are far more important. …read more Source: Project...

      Can Minsk 2.0 Save Ukraine?
      Feb19

      Can Minsk 2.0 Save Ukraine?

      The new ceasefire agreement, signed by the leaders of France, Germany, Russia, and Ukraine, is unlikely to fare any better than the previous one, because Vladimir Putin has found in Ukraine the perfect tool with which to confound and divide the West. And Putin’s firmest political credo is simple: what he can divide, he can rule. …read...

      Why Ukraine Needs Weapons

      Why Ukraine Needs Weapons

      Just as there is no purely military solution to the conflict in Ukraine, there is no purely diplomatic one. Only by strengthening Ukraine’s defensive capabilities – and thereby reducing the chances that a separatist military campaign would yield major territorial gains – can the US and Europe hope for a lasting political agreement....
