The War in Ukraine: What Happens Next and How to End It

  • NATO is adjacent to Ukraine, which will make supporting the insurgency far easier than it was post-1945.
  • General Secretary Joseph Stalin’s grip on power was far stronger than President Putin’s, meaning Stalin could lead the country in any direction he wanted. Putin does not have that kind of control.
  • Recognize the independence of Lugansk and Donetsk and exchange embassies
  • Accept Crimea’s current status as Russian territory
  • Never develop nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons.
  • Respect Ukrainian neutrality and sovereignty
  • Compensate Ukraine financially for the loss of Crimea and Donbass
  • Compensate Ukraine financially for damage to its infrastructure, or provide direct assistance in repairing it
  • Provide humanitarian aid and relief for Ukrainian civilians
  • Allow Ukraine to use any lost portage on the Black Sea coast at no cost
  • Increase the flow of gas to Ukraine to reduce prices
