After capping a 40-year career in the U.S. State Department in February as coordinator of sanctions policy, Daniel Fried is a sought-after voice of wisdom given his experiences as U.S. ambassador to Poland, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasia and a National Security Council senior director under two presidents, among other posts.

Fried has now found a professional home as a distinguished fellow with the Atlantic Council think tank in Washington, D.C.

In an Aug. 8 interview with the Kyiv Post, Fried discussed U.S. policy with Ukraine, the effectiveness of Western sanctions in ending Russia’s war against Ukraine, why Ukraine didn’t succeed as well as Poland after the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union and other topics in an hour-long telephone conversation.
