Michnik on Russia, Ukraine, Crimea and . . . Elsewhere

At The New Republic Adam Michnik engages in a sort of historical analysis that I typically resist - drawing parallels between current events and those precipitated by the great criminals of the last century. But in this essay his assessment is foreboding and clear-headed.* The question is how great might be the distance between Putin's aspirations and his demise.
* Here is a report about the anti-war protests in Moscow & St. Petersberg that Michnik mentions.
