    Thirty Years of Foreign Policy Pain Coming Europe’s Way
    Jan Techau August 19, 2014

    Missile Seasoning Spices Up the Ukrainian Dish
    Alexei Arbatov August 19, 2014

    The tensions between Russia and the West heightened over the issues of compliance with the INF treaty. In this case, it would not be prudent for Russia to seriously compromise its long-term security yet again while pursuing tactical goals or relying on superficial arguments.

    After the Sanctions, a Strategy for the East
    Judy Dempsey August 18, 2014

    Thanks to Merkel’s leadership, Europe agreed tougher sanctions against Russia. But these won’t take hold overnight. Russia’s neighbors need consistent, long-term help.

    Silence in the Air on Eastern Ukraine
    Dmitri Trenin August 11, 2014

    Europe's mainstream media have been giving only scant attention recently to the humanitarian situation in Eastern Ukraine. Media's gaze is far away from the place which might again disturb the peace as in Europe, and do so in a big way. Silence in the air can end in a deafening blast.

    Europe’s Saunter Toward Losing Ukraine
    Judy Dempsey August 1, 2014

    As Strategic Europe prepares takes a two-week break, the ongoing crisis in eastern Ukraine reveals an EU unable to exert a strong political will in dealing with Russia.

    What the EU’s New High Representative Should Know
    Roderick Parkes July 31, 2014

    For Eastern Europeans in particular, the EU’s raison d’être is nothing if not geopolitical. That is something the union’s next foreign policy chief needs to understand.

    Putin’s Crooked Mirror
    Jarosław Kuisz, Karolina Wigura July 28, 2014

    Almost every key concept in European political discourse—fascism, nationalism, multiculturalism—has its equivalent in Russian propaganda. But the meanings are very different.

    A Battle for Russia
    Dmitri Trenin July 28, 2014

    The Kremlin now sees the U.S. goal as the toppling of the Putin regime. That said, expecting Putin to back off betrays a lack of understanding of the gravity of the situation. It is no longer just a struggle for Ukraine, but a battle for Russia.

    Europeans Shun Even Their Soft-Power Tools
    Judy Dempsey July 23, 2014

    Can Pedro Sanchez Save the PSOE?
    Michael Pettis August 18, 2014 China Financial Markets

    If Pedro Sánchez Castejón hopes to lead Spain and his party out of its current economic crisis, he must recognize that the crisis is fundamentally a conflict between the interests of Europe’s bankers and of Europe’s workers.

    Andrew S. Weiss August 8, 2014 International New York Times Русский

    Even now, six months into the Ukrainian crisis, Western leaders don’t know how far Vladimir Putin will go in Ukraine. The United States should immediately re-establish real channels of communication with Putin and his inner circle.

    Ulrich Speck August 1, 2014
