Austin thinks the European Union has failed the Ukraine and agrees with Soros that economic sanctions may not be enough to end the crisis. With the EU as a civilian power and the Ukraine not a member of NATO, it isn’t clear what Europe should to to rescue the Ukraine. Austin suggested Jens Stoltenberg, the new Secretary General of NATO and Donald Tusk, incoming President of the European Union craft a common strategy for Russia.
