Russia’s Aggressive Posturing Escalates: What Can Europe Do?

A Call to Action for the European Leaders

European leaders seem to realise that the fate of Ukraine is now intrinsically linked to Europe’s future security and must match this intellectual realisation with more decisive steps to ensure Ukraine’s success.

The war in Ukraine has evolved into a prolonged war of attrition that transcends regional borders. It is an embodiment of Putin’s broader ambition to restore the Russian empire, and the means employed are violent.
