With all due respect to Chancellor Merkel’s accomplishments and understanding pressure put upon her by the German business, I think the annexation of Crimea is a neo-Soviet challenge to the world order and cannot be tolerated. In practical terms, the West has betrayed its diplomatic and moral obligations and pretends that the Crimea problem doesn’t exist and only “future problems” with Ukraine vs. Russia may be of concern. The annexation will firmly stand in history’s Hall of Shame whatever twists are applied today, and the names of politicians from both sides who tolerated it or made it happen will be attached.
