Re “This Isn’t Over” [March 10]: Contrary to what is suggested in the article, Russian President Vladimir Putin has not lost Ukraine. The change in Kiev can be temporary. Moreover, Russia is holding the trump card of Ukraine’s economy. Ukraine’s problem is basically one of power struggle tainted by corruption. There does not seem to be any guarantee that the new administration will be corruption-free. As such, the deep-rooted problem remains. Anything goes in the near future, especially with Putin frenetically maneuvering the situation behind the scenes.
In 1938, Adolf Hitler annexed the Sudetenland with the pretext that he wanted to defend his German brothers in that region.
