Key Thinkers from around the world
"The biggest hammer that we can drop is sectoral sanctions, and the clearest trigger for those is eastern and southern Ukraine."

“...the notions that nations do not simply redraw borders or make decisions at the expense of their neighbors simply because they are bigger or more powerful.”
"Crimea has always been and remains an inseparable part of Russia… And in case of Ukraine, our western partners have crossed the line. They acted primitively, irresponsibly and unprofessionally. ”
President of Ukraine
"Crimea is a tragedy, a major tragedy…We must set such a task and search for ways to return to Crimea on any conditions, so that Crimea may have the maximum degree of independence possible…but be part of Ukraine"
