Two Topical Ukraine Articles

Here are two important articles on Ukraine everyone should read. First, from Businessweek: Seven Reason Putin Won’t Give Up Ukraine. The reasons, if you don’t feel like reading the whole article, are:

  • Pride
  • Trade
  • History
  • Statehood
  • Crimea
  • The Navy
  • Energy

And of course, there was a cheap shot at the end, insinuating that maybe, just maybe, Putin is like Stalin, who murdered the Ukrainians. Other than that non sequitur at the end, the article wasn’t bad.

And then there’s this article on The Atlantic, Is It Time for Ukraine to Split Up? Personally, I think that may be the best way to resolve this crisis. Ukraine has been a deeply divided country for a long time. A split between east and west may be the best solution. The situation is very complicated, though, and I’m not entirely sure what would happen were Ukraine to split.
