Do good relations with Russia mean a total abandonment of its neighbors? From Foreign Policy’s The Argument:
Russia has always had a knack for overshadowing its neighbors – and this time the West, focused on Moscow, is distracted from a crisis in Ukraine. As U.S. President Barack Obama gears up to “reset” Russia relations, Ukraine is in disarray. The country is teetering between economic collapse, Russian influence, and vague promises of Western support. It will take decisive moves from Washington to help pull Ukraine back from the edge. At the least, Obama should visit ailing Ukraine and prove that good relations with Russia don’t meant forgetting the rest of the region.
