Ukraine – die richtige Art der Intervention

STOCKHOLM – Europa und die Welt werden vom fortdauernden Drama um Griechenland in Bann gehalten, doch auch die große Krise im Osten Europas hat sich nicht verflüchtigt. Teile der Ukraine sind nach wie vor von Separatisten besetzt, die von Russland unterstützt werden, und es kommt trotz des im Minsk-II-Abkommens vereinbarten Waffenstillstands immer wieder zu Kampfhandlungen.

Die seit der Unterzeichnung des Abkommens von Minsk im Februar immer wieder aufflammenden Kämpfe im Donbass im Osten der Ukraine haben eines deutlich gemacht. Wenn Russland ernsthaft daran interessiert ist, eine Lösung für den Konflikt zu finden, sollte es bereit sein, die Entsendung einer internationalen Friedensmission und Friedenssicherungstruppe zu unterstützen. Eine solche Mission könnte mit dem Prozess der Rehabilitierung der Region beginnen, die Rückkehr der durch die Gewalt vertriebenen Menschen ermöglichen und die Wiedereingliederung des Donbass in die Ukraine durch geeignete Sicherungsmaßnahmen und die ihr übertragenen Befugnisse erleichtern.

Es gibt ein Vorbild für diesen Ansatz, auf das wir zurückgreifen können. Vor zwanzig Jahren trat die internationale Gemeinschaft in die letzte Phase der Bemühungen ein, den Frieden in Bosnien zu sichern. Doch auch in Kroatien gab es schwelende Konflikte, vor allem in der Region Ostslawonien, die bis an die serbische Grenze reicht.

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
