Opinion: The world is awake to China’s and Russia’s malign ambitions

If Putin topples the freely elected government of Ukraine, that government will go into exile and should, like the governments of the nations toppled by the Nazis, be recognized by the West as the legitimate government of that country for as long as it takes to return.
