Putin’s war crimes solidify West’s military support for Ukraine
For former Finnish Prime Minister Alexander Stubb, there is no such thing as a partial victory for the Ukrainians. “Ukraine needs to push as far as it possibly can,” Stubb tells Ian Bremmer on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos.
And at a time when some might be feeling "war fatigue," it seems that Putin's lack of regard for human rights never fails to rally the cause against him. "As long as he continues this, I think the support of the West and the rest of the world is going to be steadfast," Stubb says.
It’s not just about Ukrainian sovereignty, Stubb argues, it’s about putting an unhinged dictator with the nuclear codes in check. “If Putin gets away with the nuclear threats or whatever he's doing, he's just going to continue to do more of the same.”
Look for the entire interview with Stubb, and more voices from Davos, in an upcoming episode of GZERO World with Ian Bremmer on US public television.
