To lax on our eastern border

Recently the Queen made a speech in Berlin where she tried to impress upon her audience that we should strive to keep our partners together not only in the West but the East to. Well, what is happening in the East and does anyone care?

Are we being too complacent about President Putin?

Why did we allow him to just stroll into the Crimea?

How has he paid for shooting down a civil airliner?

As you start answering these questions, you come to realise that nothing is being done, the situation isn't even being debated. At least we are talking about Iran's nuclear capability, but when it comes to President Putin and Russia, nothing, nada, null.

We cannot afford to allow the situation in the East to just run. The pressure they are putting on border countries is close to intolerable.
