Europe's bad mistake
Mykola Syruk

Program Director at the Institute Arkady Moshes commented on the Russia-West relations in Den (Ukrainian newspaper) on November 19th. He believes that Europe hasn’t made the move, not yet; that the Ukraine-for-Syria trade-off is a big thing and Russia could pull it off only after having something bigger to show than it has done to date. He also notes that Europe has begun looking for allies, anywhere, that Washington’s cool attitude to the possibility of ground operations and increased involvement in the Middle East will only spur Europeans to come to terms with Russia.
