Some conservatives have questioned Ukraine’s importance to America, as if it were a small, remote country of no strategic value. But in fact Ukraine is Russia’s broad gateway to Europe. And Europe is the first target of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s coalition of rogue states.

But today it is Russia that is challenging the international order — and we who must defend it.
