ACURA’s Anatol Lieven: Ukrainian neutrality: a ‘golden bridge’ out of the current geopolitical trap

The truth is that the West has no intention whatsoever of fighting against Russia to defend Ukraine.

President Biden and other leaders have made it clear that they will not do so, any more than the Obama administration fought for Ukraine in 2014 or the Bush administration for Georgia in 2008 – despite all the previous talk of partnership.

The idea that Germany, France or Italy would do so is simply ludicrous. In these circumstances, to insist on holding the door open to future NATO membership for Ukraine is absurd, deeply unethical, and extremely dangerous both for Ukraine and NATO’s existing members.
