    Midsummer Blues
    Dmitri Trenin July 21, 2014

    MH17 may well be a turning point in the Ukraine conflict, but President Putin remains unlikely to back down despite economic pressure from the West. Russians may look back to the summer of 2014 years from now as a game changer.

    Malaysia and Ukraine
    Dmitri Trenin July 18, 2014

    The downing of the Malaysia Airlines MH17 plane over Eastern Ukraine catapults the crisis there onto the global plane. The tragic and sudden loss of so many innocent lives should put a final point to the armed conflict—or it may put the international conflict over Ukraine on a much higher and more dangerous level.

    Time for Russia to Reconsider Its Arctic Strategy
    Brock Bodine July 17, 2014

    Tensions in Ukraine threaten to alter the security environment in the Arctic. Russia must, therefore, proceed with caution if it wants to maintain previous levels of cooperation. Only time will tell if the hawks in the Kremlin will be willing to engage in cooperation rather than see the region as a zero-sum game.

    Spies and Europe’s Dependence on America
    Judy Dempsey July 10, 2014

    Germany’s latest spying scandals should spur the EU to revitalize its declining science and technology sectors. The chances are that this opportunity won’t be seized.

    Ulrich Speck July 10, 2014

    A more confident, post-modern Germany that sees the world in a very different way than Russia is emerging. While illusions are gone, however, interests remain, and they incentivize both sides to work together on a range of issues.

    Why Haven’t We Talked to Putin?
    Eugene Rumer July 23, 2014 Boston Review

    Neither sanctions against Russia nor military aid to Ukraine can resolve the current crisis. The best option for U.S. policymakers is to engage with Putin and his inner circle—if it’s not too late.

    Will MH17 Air Crash Damage Russia’s Putin?
    Dmitri Trenin July 22, 2014 BBC Русский

    If the investigators’ verdict on the Malaysia Airlines plane crash does eventually fall against Russia, Vladimir Putin will survive politically, but will have to work hard to restore faith in him, and his good fortune.

    The Russian View of What Happened to Flight MH17
    Dmitri Trenin July 21, 2014 WBUR’s Here and Now

    With the international investigation of the Malaysian plane crash yet to begin in earnest, the West will base its understanding on evidence supplied mainly by the United States and Russia will see Western actions as punishment not for shooting down the plane, but rather for Moscow’s position on Ukraine.

    Ukraine and the Aftermath of the Downing of Flight MH17
    Dmitri Trenin July 19, 2014 Guardian

    An independent inquiry into the Malaysia Airlines plane crash over eastern Ukraine and an immediate ceasefire by all sides could be the first step in a process to reverse the trend toward mutual destruction within Ukraine and beyond.
