"Internationally, they should pursue a posture comparable to that of Finland," Kissinger stressed in an article published by "The Washington Post".

But if Ukraine is to survive and thrive, it must not be either side's outpost against the other - it should function as a bridge between them, the former US State Secretary, Henry Kissinger, says.
