Negoiations

Merkel, Putin and Hollande

Merkel and Hollande have been to visit Putin on the Ukraine.

Merkel is a realist and reckons there is no quick answer but it should be by negotiation.

I can do no better than to commend an article by Allan Massie in today’s Scotsman – 11 Feb 2015

As Massie points out the West is not blameless in this respect and I can only note that the UK was not invited to join the table.

And as Massie says we both have a common enemy.
