    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.

    The EU’s Ukraine Test
    Shi Zhiqin, Lai Suetyi July 22, 2014 中文

    The Ukraine crisis is not only a test for the EU and Germany but also a significant opportunity for China to usher in a new relationship among large powers.

     
  • Op-Ed
    Will MH17 Air Crash Damage Russia’s Putin?
    Dmitri Trenin July 22, 2014 BBC

    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.

     
  • Op-Ed
    After Vladimir Putin Warmth at BRICS, Sudden Chill for Delhi
    C. Raja Mohan July 19, 2014 Financial Express

    India has a big stake in preventing the further deterioration of U.S.-Russian relations. If India’s silence on Ukraine until now has been misunderstood, it must now speak up.

     
  • Op-Ed
    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.

     
  • Op-Ed
    The Slaughter of Innocents
    David Rothkopf July 17, 2014 Foreign Policy

    When innocents die, standard military metrics for success or failure pale in comparison with the human costs depicted so graphically in the media.

     
  • Op-Ed
    Why Territorial Disputes in Asia-Pacific Should Worry Russia
    Petr Topychkanov July 17, 2014 Russia Direct

    An important obstacle to the escalation of tensions in the Asia-Pacific region is the position of third-party countries, including Russia, which is interested in developing relations with China and also its neighbors.

     
  • Op-Ed
    Iran, Russia, and the Ukrainian Crisis
    Alexei Arbatov July 17, 2014 National Interest

    The fundamental dilemma of Moscow’s policy lies in whether it is worth cooperating to achieve a comprehensive agreement with Iran, which would primarily be a success for the United States, under conditions of confrontation with the West over Ukraine.

     
  • Op-Ed
    The Great Game Folio: Russian Pipeline
    C. Raja Mohan July 16, 2014 Financial Express

    The long discussed overland pipeline bringing hydrocarbons from Russia to India is gaining some traction with the NDA government.

     
  • Op-Ed
    Blurred Lines Between War and Peace
    Lilia Shevtsova July 11, 2014 American Interest

    Allowing Kiev to restore the country’s territorial integrity is the best way to bring real peace to Ukraine. At the same time, pressuring Kiev to declare a new ceasefire that will give the rebels another break will only prolong the conflict.

     
  • Eurasia Outlook
    The New Indian Authorities Know Russia Firsthand
    Petr Topychkanov July 24, 2014

    Some may call Narendra Modi’s international relations’ expertise into question. In reality, Modi and his associates do have foreign policy experience. This experience will guide them toward a balanced policy in which Russia will play one of the key roles.

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

    Sanctions can be one of the EU’s most effective instruments of soft power. Yet EU governments are unwilling to make full use of this resource and put values before interests.

     
  • Eurasia Outlook
    Heirs of the ’93 Russian White House
    Thomas de Waal July 23, 2014

    The leaders of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Alexander Borodai and Igor Strelkov, are both Russian citizens who worked for the intelligence services, fought in Chechnya, spent time in Transnistria and worked for the ultra-nationalist newspaper, Zavtra. Putin must know that they have become a toxic liability.

    Is There a Solution?
    Sergei Aleksashenko July 22, 2014

    Ukraine’s position as an important transport corridor for Russian gas has resulted in various periods of conflict between Ukraine and Russian-state owned gas companies. But, even though both recognize they will not reach a long-term agreement quickly, one can easily see that the number of disagreements between them is not great. Both realize the need to compromise.

    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.
