A вЂњwake-up callвЂќ for Biden
The Boston Globe newspaper believes that a recent article by Russian President Vladimir Putin, in which he spoke about the historical unity of Russians and Ukrainians, should be a вЂњwake-up callвЂќ for US President Joe Biden. According to the publication, Putin's words about вЂњone peopleвЂќ should have been enough to вЂњterrifyвЂќ the leadership of Ukraine.
The Boston Globe notes that this week, just when the US could have supported Kyiv, the Biden administration removed the last obstacles to the Nord Stream 2. According to the newspaper, Biden can still help Ukraine by taking a leading role in the negotiations on the Donbas, increasing military assistance to Kyiv, as well as appointing Ukraine as a major non-NATO ally.
