International Election Observers: Azerbaijani Parliamentary Elections “Free, Transparent, Democratic”
International observers concluded Monday that Azerbaijan’s parliamentary elections were generally in accord with internationally-accepted standards.
The failure of the world to follow through on its resolutions is endangering the authority of the bodies charged with keeping the peace.
This thaw is almost certainly a result of the realization that the constant bludgeoning Ukraine took from Brussels over every failure strengthened apologists for Russia against Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s hard pivot to the EU.
Ukraine clearly wants to be part of a united Europe. It is incumbent upon us to help them remain on the road to a modern, European democracy, rather than wasting our time and theirs threatening and reproaching them without end.
