Why Russia Will Escalate

On the Center for European Policy Analysis website, AHS speaker Jakub Grygiel explains why the war in Ukraine will not be settled by negotiations and is likely to see a further escalation of Russian military involvement:

"An unresolved territorial conflict will impede Ukraine’s westward march while at the same time it will be a violent reminder of Europe’s inability to deal with military threats, the Achilles’s heel of the post-modern political architecture built in Brussels."
