Self-Assurance: To What End?

Even if the West reaffirmed its support for Ukraine at this year's Munich Security Conference, the different leaders made various assertions, says Aylin Matlé, Research Fellow at DGAP's Center for Security and Defense. She is convinced: The first and obvious conclusion to draw from these various assertions is that Western leaders amongst themselves have yet to agree on a similar wording in relation to victory and defeat in the war against Ukraine. Secondly, and more weightily, the differing formulas reveal a deeper problem: the West does not know what exactly it wants in and for Ukraine.
