Issued on: Modified:
Where's the de-escalation between Russia and Ukraine? After Sunday's direct standoff between the two nations' fleets off the coast of Crimea, the general conclusion is that there was quite a bit of grandstanding for domestic reasons on both sides and that neither Moscow nor Kiev stand to benefit from a spiral that could lead to all-out war. What are the perils of ignoring what's become a permanent state of conflict in eastern Ukraine? What does it say about the world order as it stands?
