The John Batchelor Show

Stephen F. Cohen, NYU, Princeton University.

 Stephen F. Cohen, in re:  . . .  about 6,000 people killed, most innocent civilians, and a million refugees. Can Ukraine be kept together? It’s divided families.  Further, can NATO hold together?  Ukraine is thought to  be able to hold together with a federal constitution but not only would Eastern Ukraine have its rights respected; so would the west which leans toward Europe.  Will have to have own local elected representatives. Very difficult tax revenues policy currently.  What can the federal govt do: make foreign policy?   Take the country into NATA?  Have to rule that Ukraine will always be a militarily nonaligned country, like Finland and others. Could create a suitable constitution in an hour – who can impose it?    Does Putin see Proshenko as an agent for this decentralized country? He probably sees that he won't find a better partner in Ukraine than Poroshenko . . . whose strength right now comes from his support in Europe and Washington.
