Only armed Ukraine can force peace

The West should supply Kiev with weapons so that continued intervention becomes so expensive for Moscow that it is forced to agree to a political solution, Ivo Daalder, head of the Chicago Council of Global Affairs, urges in the conservative daily Financial Times: "To date, the arguments against direct military assistance to Ukraine have won out. Fears of escalation and concerns that such steps would undermine a political solution have dominated the European debate. ... As for a political settlement, it should be evident that Mr Putin will settle only when the costs of continuing the war are too high. Supplying arms to Ukraine will raise the costs to Russia, increasing the likelihood that a real settlement can be negotiated. The time for doing so is now."
