乌克兰危机中的切尔诺贝利因素

洛杉矶——切尔诺贝利核电站爆炸后二十八年,别样的核幽灵出现在乌克兰面前:乌克兰的反应堆可能会在俄罗斯军事入侵中遭受打击。乌克兰代理外长杰舍察在三月海牙召开的核安全峰会上讲话时表示如果局势恶化导致公开战争爆发,“很多核设施都有可能受到威胁”

本月初,乌克兰驻国际原子能机构大使伊霍尔·普罗科普丘克向管理委员会递交了一封信件,警告军事入侵可能给“乌克兰及邻国领土带来辐射污染威胁”。 基辅的乌克兰议会呼吁国际监察员协助保护核设施,同时囊中羞涩的政府也在尽一切努力完成这项任务。

乌克兰的担忧仅仅是一种夸张、如克里姆林所言是“恶意诽谤”,还是理应引起国际社会的重视?乌克兰政府焦虑的确是不争的事实。就连1986年以后出生的乌克兰人也清楚战争带来的切尔诺贝利式灾难可能造成什么样的后果。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
