Winter has arrived, the trees have lost their leaves, and President Joe Biden is disillusioned. For the US, the outlook is bleak at both the international and domestic levels: severe consequences of climate catastrophe, a growing political and military threat from Russia in Europe, and fierce competition from China in the east. At home, the United States faces a serious weakening of its political institutions.
Hawks in both parties have accused Mr Biden of compromising with Russia. First, they want Washington to intervene with decisive military assistance. Then they were convinced that if the United States threatened military intervention, Mr. Putin would back down. Republicans, however, are not as vocal as they once were, as they all remember Trump's controversial ties to Russia.
After the disastrous drawdown in Afghanistan, every opinion poll suggests that American society will never again support a new military intervention abroad that could escalate into a serious international conflict.
Mr Putin is testing the strength and resolve of his American and European rivals. All possibilities cannot be ruled out, but it is more a matter of influencing the stability of Kiev's rule than a military invasion of Ukraine.
Mr. Biden's response was twofold: On the one hand, he threatened Russia with a full range of economic and political sanctions at the disposal of the United States, even blocking its access to the international financial system. Sanctions will severely affect the Russian economy. The US, on the other hand, will have to find ways to defend Ukraine's independence while being careful not to provoke Russia outright.
The United States may suspend further arms shipments to Ukraine, but it will in no way guarantee that Ukraine will not become a member of NATO or the European Union. Perhaps the United States could assuage Russian military concerns, for example, by negotiating a new agreement on strategic arms and conventional military forces.
