West

“… Two days later, the same group of countries stated they support Ukraine’s proceedings before the International Court of Justice, seeking ‘to establish that Russia has no lawful basis to take military action in Ukraine on the basis of unsubstantiated allegations of genocide’. …

Now it’s interesting to look at which countries signed up for these initiatives. Of course, the US, the UK, Norway, Iceland, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and all the EU-27 members, including the EU as a collective entity. But what about the others?

The other signatories are Albania, Andorra, the Marshall Islands, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Palau and San Marino. …

We have already argued that even in the context of Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine, his world is not so small. In the UN, the home of 193 nations, he can still count on international support – or at least neutrality – from dozens of countries, including from some of the world’s most populous ones, like India, Brazil, South Africa, or Mexico. …

The EU remains attractive to most of the world for its living standards, but less so for its democratic and human rights values.

The paradox is that the rich West is attractive but not influential enough, both at the international and grassroots level. And at the same time, the rejection of Western values is becoming an increasingly powerful ideology shared by billions.”
