Especially in the German discussion of Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine, we hear repeated calls for quick diplomatic fix to end the war. A variety of war endings are imaginable, only none of them has the potential to form the basis for a lasting peace. Looking at past cases of war termination in European history, it becomes clear that the only strategic aim in order to bring about an enduring peace when confronted with such a nationalistic and uncompromising actor as Russia is to aim for regime change. This cannot, however, be effected from the outside. Therefore, a countervailing strategy on the part of the West is the only remaining strategic option for the time being.
