Ukraine as Kairos
The Order in Our Minds and the Disorder in the World

Karl Schlögel

Deutsche Fassung


Ukraine has become a battlefield. Ukrainians, men and women alike, are repelling neo-totalitarian Russia’s attack and, by fighting for their freedom and independence, are also defending ours. The assertion that the dictator in Moscow is seeking to subjugate Ukraine and destroy the Ukrainian people’s identity is not some invention made up by the West. Those who advise Ukraine to capitulate are also laying the groundwork for Europe’s or the West’s surrender. Whether Europe has a future will be decided in Ukraine.
