Ukraine, Russia and European stability

Kudos to David Miliband, who has been spearheading the campaign to settle the Georgia issue, as well as prevent further escalation there as well as in Ukraine and Moldova.

Ukraine is a leading example of the benefits that accrue when a country takes charge of its own destiny, and seeks alliances with other countries.

Its choices should not be seen as a threat to Russia or an act of hostility. Equally its independence does demand a new relationship with Russia – a partnership of equals, not the relationship of master and servant.

It is not an act of hostility towards Russia for Europe to support Ukraine, but a positive move towards lasting peace.
