Bohdan Romaniuk: NATO’s flawed logic in denying Ukraine the assistance it needs
The world's leaders it seems, are becoming increasingly inured to the heartrending pleas from Kyiv.
First, a basic truth. The only way to stop the ongoing murder in Ukraine is by intervening with physical force. Resolutions of condemnation and economic penalties are unlikely to have any effect.
It is therefore shocking to observe far more agreement within NATO on the red lines it will not cross in assisting Ukraine against Russian aggression, than on the red lines it will not allow Vladimir Putin to cross in his campaign against the people of Ukraine. Indeed, to date, not one world leader has had the courage to answer the following question: How many Ukrainian civilians must be murdered before any of the 141 countries signing the UN resolution condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine will take immediate, concrete steps to stop the slaughter?
