It is not at all clear how Russia’s war with Ukraine will end. There are certainly reasons for concern. Concerns that Russia’s President can no longer be reasoned with, that he has become unhinged, and that he may be willing to resort to the use of nuclear weapons. What has happened so far is already a worldwide disaster. There are no easy answers about what can be done to stop him. But one thing has become abundantly clear during this hostility. Russia, and in fact the authoritarian idea, is being condemned on the world stage. There is great unity among the majority of the world powers that Vladimir Putin is wrong and needs to be stopped. Even Switzerland has tossed aside its traditional neutrality to condemn the Russian invasion. The world is largely galvanized. Russia has become increasingly isolated, diplomatically and economically. The Russian people are overwhelmingly against Putin and his war. That sentiment will no doubt grow when bodies of Russian soldiers are returned to their homeland to be buried. Perhaps when this war is over, hopefully sooner rather than later, the world will see even more clearly that democracy, not imperialism, is the key to peace in the world.
