On the Monday edition of Lubbock’s First News, Vice Provost for International Affairs at Texas Tech University Tibor Nagy discussed international drama surrounding Ukraine.

Nagy said, “I think the most important thing to remember is that Ukraine is much more important to Russia than it is to us or to the Europeans. That’s the fundamental operating principle that we have to go by.”

He noted that President Obama, with a poor track record in dealing with Syria, will not make the best of this situation. Nagy believes the future is uncertain, though most likely the results will generally be negative. He discussed President Obama’s talk with Vladmir Putin and the lackluster results of that conversation. Nagy offered an alternative perspective and solution of greater restrictions that will affect the more elite in Russia.
