This was the unfortunate backdrop for a meeting in Kiev between Switzerland’s federal president, Didier Burkhalter, and Ukraine’s prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, convened Monday to discuss rising tensions between Ukraine and Russia. The Ukraine’s prime minister office had arranged to have a Swiss flag in the office along with Ukraine’s for the moment when the two political leaders shook hands. A great gesture, if only that had been the Swiss flag rather than Denmark’s.
