    Can Merkel Deal With Putin’s Myths?
    Judy Dempsey October 20, 2014

    Vladimir Putin is perpetuating a number of illusions about Russia and Ukraine. As long as that continues, it is hard to see how relations with the West can be restored.

    Paying for Ukraine
    Dmitri Trenin October 20, 2014

    If Ukraine is allowed to become a failed state, the consequences for Europe will be serious, even dire. Making sure that Ukraine keeps itself warm this winter is an absolutely necessary step.

    The West Should Not Reject Russia’s Assistance in Afghanistan
    Petr Topychkanov October 14, 2014

    If common sense prevails and the West resumes its cooperation with Russia, the consolidated response to security threats in Afghanistan will be far more effective than the current disjointed efforts by various countries.

    The EU’s Wavering Over Russia
    Judy Dempsey October 13, 2014

    By delegating its responsibility, the EU is playing an ambiguous role in the Ukraine crisis. The only country to benefit from that ambiguity will be Russia.

    Indian Summer: Ukraine Before the Elections
    Balázs Jarábik October 13, 2014

    Forthcoming elections give Ukraine a feeling of hope. However, for most Ukrainians the optimistic political advertisements contrast sharply with their own experiences. The war in the Donbas and the worsening economic and social situation are likely to bring more people to the parliament with no appetite for dialogue.

    Chechen Mysteries in Donetsk
    Thomas de Waal October 9, 2014

    Memorial’s new report documents the involvement of Chechen fighters in the conflict in Donbass. Their presence there is all about Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov and a gesture of loyalty to Moscow.

    Sanctions and the OSCE’s Mission in Ukraine
    Judy Dempsey October 9, 2014

    The ceasefire between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine appears to be holding. Could that be enough for the EU to ease sanctions against Russia?

    Welcome to the Bubble, Mrs. Mogherini
    Jan Techau October 7, 2014

    The EU machinery suffers from a culture of nonexecutive nonchalance. That may well be the biggest stumbling block for the union’s incoming foreign policy supremo.

    Ukraine Election Countdown: 20 Days Remaining
    Yuliya Bila, Isaac Webb October 6, 2014

    In August, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called for early parliamentary elections to kick-start his reform agenda and to cleanse Ukraine of lawmakers who owed their loyalty to the ways and personalities of the pre-Maidan era.

    Parliamentary Elections Will Deepen Divisions in Ukraine
    Gwendolyn Sasse October 3, 2014

    Ukraine’s forthcoming parliamentary election is essential for rebuilding the country, but its short-term effect will be to entrench existing divisions between east and west.

    The End of Convergence?
    Uri Dadush, Vikram Nehru, Carl Dahlman October 15, 2014 Washington, DC

    Convergence, the narrowing of the income gap between poor and rich countries, is one of the great stories of our time. A recent report shows that convergence has slowed in recent years, and that productivity in developing countries is not rising rapidly enough in key sectors.

    No Quick Fix for NATO and Russia
    Judy Dempsey October 13, 2014 Moscow Times

    For NATO, the Ukraine crisis has ended the post–Cold War era. The organization now enters a new chapter in its relations with Russia, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
