An old Russian joke has it that a pessimist believes things can’t possibly get worse, whereas an optimist is confident they can. Just a few decades ago, the Cold War seemed like a major existential threat to the world but nowadays it looks like a period of deft diplomacy and successful conflict management. Does the situation in and around Ukraine offer any hope for pessimism?
