Waiting for the worse to come

Czekając na gorsze

EN | PL | IT – Russia annexes Crimea, her neighbours are horrified. The West is aghast and helpless. This is the fruition of the totally inadequate Western policy towards Russia. Attempts to civilize the Russian bear ended with Crimean disaster and lethal threats to Ukraine, Baltic states and Poland. The corner stone of the Western policy towards Moscow after the demise of the Soviet Union has been a strong conviction that with a little help Russia would turn into democracy, her economy would be based on free market rules and business with trade exchange would support, if not enforce the democratic process.
