Newsline: Foreign policy experts call for ‘limited no-fly zone’ over Ukraine

More than two dozen foreign policy experts have called for the United States and NATO to institute a partial no-fly zone over Ukraine, which would serve as an escalation of the conflict with Russia. In a letter first reported by Politico on Tuesday morning, the 27 officials “[urged] the Biden administration, together with NATO allies, to impose a limited No-Fly Zone over Ukraine starting with protection for humanitarian corridors that were agreed upon in talks between Russian and Ukrainian officials on Thursday.” “NATO leaders should convey to Russian officials that they do not seek direct confrontation with Russian forces, but they must also make clear that they will not countenance Russian attacks on civilian areas,” they added. (https://www.aol.com/foreign-policy-experts-call-limited-142427346.html) Among those signing the letter were William Taylor (former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine), Kurt Volker (former U.S. ambassador to NATO) and Alexander Vershbow (former U.S. ambassador to both NATO and Russia).
