The wider political and cultural effects of the Ukrainian war

Coming just after the end of the Cold War the Bosnian civil war and the other wars of the Yugoslav succession made people think nationalism was the enemy and internationalism the answer. 

This war in Ukraine might well have the same effect. 

It will strengthen the EU and the globalists, as well as NATO. 

The reverse should be the case. The Ukrainians are fighting for sovereignty and independence, the two issues which made the UK vote to leave the EU. 

But they are also voting to be part of the EU and a satellite of the USA.

This war has in fairly large part been caused by the anti-nationalist American Democrats. Self-evidently it would be very unlikely to have broken out were Donald Trump still in the White House, but politics and war are not fair.
