It's always a pleasure to read the words of former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, so imagine my joy at breakfast this morning when I opened up the Globe and Mail and found his latest article, entitled "Peace in Ukraine requires a carrot and stick approach."
You get a sense of where it's going from the very first sentence, which says:
"I just returned from the contact line in Ukraine's conflict with Russia, which separates free Ukraine from the Russian-occupied parts of the Donbass region."
I suspect that a lot of Irrussianality readers would have stopped right there and turned instead to the sports section, but it's my job to read this guff, so I ploughed on. And what great reading it made!
