The stakes in Ukraine


sir – While the public has been mourning Queen Elizabeth, I hope the Government has been working overtime to find ways of helping Ukraine maintain its counter-offensive against Russia.

The Ukrainians are fighting for democracy. It beggars belief that much-needed tanks have been refused export licences by Germany.

sir – What is the Russian army fighting for in Ukraine? The answer is Vladimir Putin’s vanity.

What are the Ukrainians fighting for? They fight for their country, their compatriot­s, their families and their friends. Their recent successes demonstrat­e the power of these motivation­s.

Putin cannot tolerate being seen to be defeated. Beware the cornered rat. Alastair Mutch
