NATO, Russia: Arms or Diplomacy Choice (II)
05.04.2014 | 00:00 | Andrei AKULOV
Following Tuesday’s NATO meeting, Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski, whose country led the effort to bring Kiev closer to the E.U., told reporters that «the rest of the Europe is sometimes half a phase behind us». Virtually no one in official E.U. circles, be they East or West, is calling for NATO boots on Ukrainian soil… NATO should think real hard before stepping on the path of open confrontation with Russia instead of using the diplomatic means to settle the differences and find common ground to tackle the issue of Ukraine in a positive way.
