Here’s what my response would be: When one has a certain understanding of a situation about what is going on or how one got there, it has very direct consequences for what steps one should be taking and what steps one thinks one should be taking in the future.

And then there’s people in the State Department and the Department of Defense and intelligence agencies, and I think there’s, again, a lot of variation there that ranges from people who are smart, knowledgeable, well-intentioned, but have what I perceive to be the wrong kind of understanding and framework for what is happening. Both the US and Germany have explicitly linked restraint in supporting Ukraine to Russia’s nuclear threats. However, this book defended Russia without explaining to the reader why so many countries fear Russia. The Wider Europe programme aims to help the European Union defend its interests and values in the Western Balkans, Turkey, Russia, and eastern Europe, as well as the South Caucasus and central Asia. I think the first step is simply to realize there’s a problem and to accept that one is in a state of where much of what one considers to be the correct knowledge may not be correct, to at least contemplate that possibility and in some sense to commit oneself to truth.One conundrum has been that, despite anticipating a full cyber war, major Russian attacks upon Ukraine infrastructure have largely failed to materialize. Seventy-one per cent of respondents in the US, 77 per cent in Great Britain, and 65 per cent in the EU countries polled alight on one of these two terms; they regard the future of relations with Russia as one of confrontation. When western media highlights only one or two events in history and bases its whole current thesis and "conclusions" upon it, any lazy and/or naive person easily becomes victim to the now widespread assumptions as to what we should think and how to think about this war. The majority of the Indian public perceives almost every other power – including the US (70 per cent), Russia (63 per cent), China (53 per cent), the EU (67 per cent), Great Britain (63 per cent), and India itself (68 per cent) – as “stronger” than they say they thought before Russia’s all-out war on Ukraine.

If you do not consider anything Russia has done internationally or the aggression, conflict and violence towards others than fine. This marked a change from the ethnic identity divides which had previously defined Ukrainian elections and saw Zelenskyy become the manifestation of a new modern Ukraine where values and a turn towards Europe mattered more than language and local identity. Forced to crack down on such activities of oligarchs and their associates, UK and other states have realised they cannot keep letting this cash flow in while trying to leverage sanctions and take the moral high ground.

Perceptions of the European Union and Great Britain are also predominantly positive: Indians see these as either an “ally” or “partner. This includes analysing the path forward for enlargement, the energy transition, and European support for Ukraine. This is also what Brazil is currently doing: President Lula speaks in favour of preserving his country’s neutrality vis-à-vis Ukraine and Russia, to avoid “any participation, even indirect,” even as he accepts that Russia “was wrong” to invade its neighbour. She says Ukraine’s resilience and the sanctions faced by Russia have provided a ‘live simulation’ of the reaction an invasion of Taiwan could face, and is causing pause in Beijing. The UK has been keen to stress its ‘special relationship’ with Kyiv with a desire especially by former prime minister Boris Johnson to lead the pack with strong rhetoric and military support.

I have a medical degree — an MD degree — from the Yale University School of Medicine, and years ago I worked in Washington, D.Seventy-two per cent of people in Turkiye, 60 per cent in China, and 59 per cent in Russia see little difference between EU and US policies towards their countries (no doubt to the disappointment of President Emmanuel Macron and other champions of European strategic autonomy). I don’t think they’re necessarily thinking they’re doing it at the expense of the country as a whole. Before Russia’s invasion, European states, such as France and Germany, had failed to adapt to new geopolitical realities in the region and Russia’s actions would lead to a dramatic reappraisal of European security posture. The rising powers considered in this study often view Europe and America as forming part of a single West.

Observers have been surprised by the strength of Ukraine’s resistance, resilience, and national cohesion. Real Change is a non-profit organization advocating for economic, social and racial justice since 1994. Through a series of misguided policies, Washington and its European allies placed Russia in an untenable situation for which war seemed, to Mr. By way of comparison, 31 per cent of Americans and Britons characterise their own country as “declining. In contrast to opinion in the West, people in many non-Western countries appear to believe that the post-cold war era is finished.She says the war has also seen a departure in NATO and western allies’ indulging in any ‘tit for tat’ moves that might escalate the conflict. The problem is that the Russian imperial itch is deeply embedded within the elite and popular imagination,’ says James Nixey. While the threats are not new, there is still a question over their credibility and how the West responds. A new poll suggests that Russia’s war on Ukraine has consolidated ‘the West;’ European and American citizens hold many views in common about major global questions.
