Ed Lozansky: Ukrainian elections: Why should Americans care?

In Ukraine, the U.S. officials and their counterparts from other NATO countries played a key role in the unconstitutional regime change that broke what had been a delicate balance in an unstable and corrupt state.

Fast-forward to the present, when Ukraine will have a second-round runoff Sunday between comedian Volodymyr Zelensky and the “Chocolate King” oligarch, President Petro Poroshenko. Judging from U.S. officials’ words and actions, their choice is the latter.

Paul Robinson: Review of Richard Sakwa’s ‘Russia’s Futures’

 I strongly recommend Russia’s Futures. There are so many books out there portraying Russia in an absurdly negative light, that it’s deeply refreshing to come across something which is extremist only in its sense of balance.
