The Bottom Line

Is this the end of large-scale support for the war in Ukraine?

Renowned economist Jeffrey Sachs says the US should be pushing for negotiations and compromise to end the Ukraine war.

Was it an historic blunder for Western leaders to keep expanding NATO eastward, even though they knew it would provoke a war with Russia eventually?

Columbia University professor Jeffrey Sachs argues that the United States provoked the tragedy in Ukraine, and that the Biden administration should be working to resolve it, even if that means painful compromises – such as redrawing the map of Ukraine.

Sachs tells host Steve Clemons that the war is becoming less and less popular throughout Europe and the US, which means that large-scale funding may soon dry up.
