The invasion and military intervention of Russia in Ukraine raises the risk of a new war, including a nuclear war, in Europe. Putin stance is not only a criminal act, it is also a mistake: it is a back-clash from a common security balance based in trust building measures and international treaties, to the law of the most powerful. However, the U.S., Europe and NATO failed to involve Gorbaciov’ Russia in the building of a common security, geopolitical and economic cooperation in the post ’89. This created decline and resentment over the years, favored the surge of nationalistic and populistic stands which found in Putin a popular leader. Mitterand alerted us that “nationalism means war”. S we should have known better. In the same time, the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, after 20 years of a mission that started as a counter-terrorism operation, evolved into a regime change operation and ended up as a nation-building exercise which failed and provoked intense questioning among allies. The most important message was, that the U.S. is leaving the era of trying to remake the world by force behind it. And rightly so: following the West hegemonic thinking, starting from the ’90 (the economic globalization times), to the 2001 global war on terror, most of the steps taken only provoked increased resentment and rejection worldwide.

Episode 2 "Andreas Schieder, war in Ukraine: the EU, the Global Progressive Forum and Austrian neutrality."
Listen to it on our website:
or on Spotify:

For Andreas Schieder, the recent ...aggression of Putin's authoritarian regime on Ukraine forces progressives around the world to reaffirm our commitment to peace and security, through democracy, multilateralism, defence and social justice, in terms that need to be redefined. But first, the EU must act with unity and solidarity in response to the war in Ukraine. #StandWithUkraine

Andreas Schieder is member of the Austrian SPÖ, Member of the European Parliament in the Socialists and Democrats Group in the European Parliament in the European Parliament and co-Chair of the Global Progressive Forum

On this year’s International Women’s Day, we call on Putin to STOP HIS WAR IN UKRAINE! It must be said again that in a war, women are the hardest hit. About 1.7 million people have already fled the war zones. The targeting of civilians, their livelihoods, their ...hospitals and their infrastructure are war crimes. Is it any surprise that the one who launched this war presents himself as the strong man, the alpha male? Certainly not!

This 8 March women and men will beat the street to call for an end of gender violence, for equal pay and equal rights! The calls are not new, but there is still a long way to go. Feminist foreign policy is significant progress, but we need more from words to deeds! At all levels!
