The View From Olympus: The Summer of ’14

Were Washington and the E.U. to do what statesmen in 1914 refused to do and take account of the other side’s interests, a settlement of the Ukrainian crisis would not be difficult.
The basic shape of an agreement would cover four points: 1. NATO will not invite Ukraine to join. 2. Ukraine agrees not to seek NATO membership. 3. Following a cease-fire and a general pardon, Russian-speakers in Ukraine will have their rights guaranteed by all parties, those rights being similar to what Francophones have in Canada. 4. Economically, Ukraine will belong to both east and west, serving as a bridge between the two, which could be a highly profitable role.
