David Rothkopf: The Russian war on Ukraine that many experts expected to last less than a week has entered its third month. He says Russia has not only been denied swift victory but also driven back from the capital, Kyiv. NATO allies have pivoted from a strategy premised on the likelihood of rapid Russian victory to one aimed at aiding Ukraine’s fight, Rothkapf says. But NATO might soon actually grow, with the likely inclusion of Finland and Sweden, he says. It's worth accepting costs and taking risks to make sure that Russia fails, and emerges from the conflict unable to wage such aggression again.
