Zu Guttenberg calls for German leadership in Ukraine.

In a recent article analyzing the crisis in the Ukraine, former German Defense Secretary Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg called for coordinated action by EU and the U.S., and he criticized their lethargy and dis-unified front. He also called for greater German leadership in the crisis: “My fellow countrymen will not be happy to hear this, but Germany will have to play a core role in this process. After all, Germany has more experience with Europe’s transition countries than probably anyone else” (The American Interest, March 12, 2014).
