Carl Bildt, former Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Sweden, shares his perspective from Europe this week from Dnipro, Eastern Ukraine.
What's going to happen? Will there be war?
Well, we simply don't know. Putin has organized the most massive concentration of military forces that we've seen in Europe in a generation. He has impossible political demands. He's in a position where it's very difficult to see how we can climb down. For the time, I think we have an opening or continued opening for diplomatic process, but the military mobilization around the borders of Ukraine still seems to be there. It's a massively dangerous situation created by the obsessions of one single man. He has an impeccable track record of misjudging the people and the determination of Ukraine, which you can see examples here of at the museum of the tragedy of the fighting in 2014, ongoing with over 14,000 people killed so far.
