When life in the Soviet Bloc was still mysterious, this book helped me understand better.

For a book revolving around the Stasi it is surprisingly boring.

https://fromtheheartofeurope.eu/how-to-end-russias-war-on-ukraine-by-timothy-ash...

the title is slightly misleading, in that it doesn’t mean “By adopting these recommendations, the war can be brought to an end”, it’s more “This is the intellectual framing in which the end of the war should be imagined”.

There are nine chapters, each by a different writer, book-ended by pieces from James Nixey, who has ceded to Tim Ash the distinction of being first-named contributor, I guess on alphabetical grounds. Each chapter tackles a particular fallacy – and these are not straw men, these are arguments I have actually seen and heard people make, including some who surprised me. In general I agree with the writers of the report, and disagree with the following propositions:

* ‘Settle now: all wars end at the negotiating table’
* ‘Ukraine should concede territory in exchange for peace’
* ‘Ukraine should adopt neutrality’
* ‘Russian security concerns must be respected’
* ‘Russian defeat is more dangerous than Russian victory’
* ‘Russia’s defeat in Ukraine will lead to greater instability in Russia’
* ‘This is costing too much, and the West needs to restore economic ties with Russia’
* ‘Ukraine’s pursuit of justice hinders peace’
* ‘This war is not our fight, and there are more important global problems’

Fundamentally, it’s important to help Ukraine to win, and not to impose external limits on what that victory is going to look like. What the Russians do is their responsibility. They chose this war, completely without provocation, and they can sort themselves out afterwards.

Definitely read this before, maybe a different edition? Was there a czech-only version? Anyway, it was nice to relive and as usual offered some perspective on our current situation.
