James Sherr, a fellow at the Russian and
Eurasian program at London-based think tank Chatham House and a Western
analyst on security issues in Ukraine and Russia, is critical of the Ukrainian leadership’s weak response.

Like Russian President Vladimir Putin’s
former adviser, Andrey Illarionov, Sherr believes that if Ukraine
wants the West to defend it, the country should start defending itself more
actively, including militarily.

Sherr also offers advice on
what Kyiv, Brussels and Washington should to do to stop Russia and to defend
Ukraine.
