The following letter to the editor was in the Chicago Sun-Times online letters, Oct. 8, 2022. The title I had submitted was “Recognizing Putin’s Annexation of Ukraine’s Territory.” It also appeared in the newspaper, Oct. 9, page 38, under the title “Don’t reward Putin for war.”
Don’t reward Putin’s bad behavior
To those who might suggest Vladimir Putin’s annexation of Ukraine’s territory should be recognized, I ask what they would say if he tried to annex some of Alaska’s most distant Aleutian Islands.
The only things limiting Putin’s advances have been determined Ukrainians and the equipment they have been given. Their definition of victory is to drive out the Russian attackers; they have no desire to annex any part of Russia. Putin should not be rewarded for his “bad behavior.”
