Exemplary bravery has placed the Ukrainian people on the cusp of achieving, for real, the independence it had gained from the Soviet Union's breakup in 1992 mostly as a formality.
It is time to confront Russian President Vladimir Putin's ex-KGB regime over Mr. Putin's audacious actions in Ukraine and the former Soviet republics ("Forsaking friends in Ukraine," Commentary, Dec. 24).

George Orwell once remarked that we have less sympathy for the 7 million victims of Stalin's famine in Ukraine and the Caucasus than we do for the dog that we just hit on the road. The dog is an audible yelp and visible carnage: flesh, blood, bone and fur scattered over the highway. The 7,000,000 dead Ukrainians, on the other hand, are just a number.
As a mental challenge, try to think of all of the governmental activities - federal, state and local - that could be privatized. Now, go a step further. Suppose you were required to develop a plan to privatize, or make self-supporting through user fees, nearly every activity of government.
We fought for freedom from European monarchs 200 years ago, but are coming perilously close to subjugating ourselves again to the authority of foreign powers. Recently, Sens. Tim Kaine and Mark R. Warner, Virginia Democrats, and Sens. Benjamin L. Cardin and Barbara A. Mikulski, Maryland Democrats, were among 46 senators who voted in a nonbinding test vote to enter into the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty.
