CFR put out an article on the current situation in the Crimea. Author Stewart Patrick concluded that, “It would be wiser for the West to shift the terms of the debate away from the legal merits of Russian conduct, and to focus instead on the illegitimacy of Russia’s annexation of Crimea and Moscow’s clear aspirations to expand its territory.” A great piece written on strategic geopolitical action!
