CHINA’S VISION OF A NEW WORLD ORDER

China is seeking not only to enjoy a central position on the global stage, commensurate with its economic and military power, but also to reshape, alter, and redefine elements of the existing system to better fit its views and interests.

EUROPEAN PUBLIC OPINION ON UKRAINE

Source: ECFR (European Council on Foreign Relations) 

Based on a survey of 8,000 citizens in 10 countries

Public opinion in Europe is beginning to diverge on whether or not to continue the efforts made to support Kyiv. The group of ‘pacifists’ represents 35% while the group of ‘hawks’ represents 22%. A fifth of Europeans hesitate between the two sides: They are hostile to Russia and in favor of a hard-line policy towards it, they also fear the effects of a long war. 23% of those questioned are undecided.

NO POSSIBLE WIN-WIN OUTCOME BETWEEN RUSSIA AND UKRAINE

Any deal between Russia and Ukraine to stop the ongoing war that results in anything less than the status quo ante in February 2014 will inevitably mean that Russian military aggression against and invasion of Ukraine, as well as the other grave violations of international law and the fundamental principles that underpin the European security order, will have been rewarded. What is at stake here is not just Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

A WAR WITHOUT END

The war in Ukraine is likely to continue at a high level of intensity through 2022, and at a greater or lesser tempo for years to come.  There are several factors that can prolong the war. The first is that the issues at stake for Ukraine and Russia are existential and are not susceptible to compromise. Ukraine is fighting for its right to self-determination. Its government and people have shown that they are prepared to make great sacrifices to defend their national sovereignty.

HOW PUTIN’S WAR HAS RUINED RUSSIA

The burden of Putin’s war on Ukraine will be borne by average Russian citizens for decades, if not longer. The damage done to Russian society, the economy, its military, its political development, and its international reputation will far out live Putin.
