Russia may be about to militarily take over Crimea, and perhaps other parts of Ukraine. As I’ve written before, things are changing so fast that it is unclear how this will end.
A war would be bad, and should be avoided. Instead, a peaceful division of the artificial state of Ukraine in its anti-Russian and pro-Russian parts should be made. The insistence of EU and American officials on preserving Ukraine’s “territorial integrity” at all cost (even oppressing those parts that don’t want to remain a part of Ukraine) risks creating a very unfortunate outcome.
