Negotiator in mold of Strauss needed

The major issue between Russia and Ukraine is apparently over access to Sevastopol in Crimea, Russia’s only warm-water naval installation, operating there since the 18th century.

This problem should be resolved between the parties through negotiation demanding an experienced, knowledgeable diplomat with finesse and international respect. No doubt Bob Strauss would have been the man for the job.
