Dr. K:  Ukraine as a New Finland

A sensible approach here by "Dr. Kissinger," who is right at home thinking about the great power relationships of the post-Cold War.   (Kissinger can't still be writing himself; I saw him a few years ago at the airport, wheelchair-bound, frail, and detached.)  The "West" apparently saw the Ukraine's rejection of a free trade agreement with the EU as a hostile act.   But events are moving swiftly now; the Crimea seems poised to join Russia, which will be quite an afront to the values that have guided international affairs for the last several decades.
