IISS’s Samuel Charap on a Diplomatic Solution

Samuel Charap at the International Institute for Strategic Studies has a sensible proposal for a diplomatic solution to the conflict, involving indefinite postponement of the Crimean referendum, international observers on the peninsula to monitor all human rights violations, the addition of representatives from south and east Ukraine to the Kievan cabinet (there are none now), and the reshuffling of cabinet posts so that the Ukrainian nationalist party Svoboda does not hold the Ministry of Defense.  But, he points out, the clock is ticking, and if the Sunday referendum comes off, everyone’s screwed.
