In the news April
The West has failed to deter Vladimir Putin
We start with an article about the invasion of Ukraine by Sky News. We deem this article to be quite objective, bearing in mind that we assume that the invasion of Ukraine is illegitimate and to be condemned. However, the article highlights the responsibilities of EU countries and the European Union in the shortfall of the response towards Russia.
