Even the NYT Gets It On The Ukraine

The New York Times > Opinion > Editorial: Saying No to Vladimir Putin: "One of the most heartening aspects of the court's decision was that a Ukrainian institution was deciding the future of Ukraine. That was especially notable after a crude attempt by Mr. Putin a day earlier to lean on the court by summoning Mr. Kuchma to a quick but extensively publicized meeting at a Moscow airport. Mr. Putin might have thought that these demeaning theatrics would intimidate or impress the judges. In the end it made his political failure only more obvious. "

This is an impressively practical NYT op-ed on Ukraine.
