Why Russia should allow Ukraine to join NATO

In embracing Finland's and soon Sweden's move to join NATO, U.S. President Joe Biden and his Western allies are doubling down on a bet that Russia has made such a huge strategic mistake over the past three months that he wants to make a major price: enduring the expansion of the very Western alliance he wanted to join.

The decision leaves hanging several major questions. Why not allow Ukraine — the flawed, corrupt but also heroic democracy at the heart of the current conflict — to join as well as enshrining the West's commitment to its security?
