Ukraine

Despite all that is wrong in the situation in Ukraine, we can at least be relieved that Western countries have chosen the path of non-violent resistance.  It remains to be seen what it will achieve, but there must be a better outcome than killing people and destroying the supposed object of the conflict:  the country, its communities, its buildings, and its heritage.  Who will persuade the combatants of other conflicts that this method could give them a better result?
