Russia, Ukraine, and all that

Cliff Gaddy and I have posted several pieces on the Ukraine crisis on the Brookings Website.

One article is entitled Ukraine: A Prize Neither Russia Nor the West Can Afford to Win. This post discusses the integration of the Russian and Ukrainian economies.

The second article is entitled "Can Sanctions Stop Putin?" The subject is obvious, and the answer is no. We discuss the difference between the impact of sanctions -- how much pain is induced -- and the effectiveness of sanctions.

A third one will be posted soon.
