letters | responding to the ukraine crisis

Wherever could Vladimir Putin have gotten his idea of splitting Crimea from Ukraine?

IT’S TRULY an outrage that, in this day and age, a region within a sovereign country can be taken over and declared independent simply because they have a majority of residents with an ethnic identity different from the majority of citizens in their country. That this sort of thing can be successfully orchestrated militarily by a foreign power is alarming. This is a blatant violation of international law and should be strongly opposed by the citizens of every free and law-abiding country where respect for national borders is held high. After all, if it can be permitted to happen even once, there will be no end to it.

Therefore, we must stand firm and refuse to recognize Kosovo.
