That looks at both sides, and offers a realistic appraisal of the situation. Bravo. What clarity, you will be attacked immediately by others, which usually happens when one pushes a unbiased view. Especially when using intelligent reason. Good article.

All moving military hardware is either transferred to rebels or destroyed.

War is suicide for Ukraine, but peace even worse, because of economics, its a ticking bomb for Kiev- and time is working on rebels.

Nuclear weapons will be on the table for a number of countries, since apparently they are the only thing that can keep one safe. The only way to defend yourself from a bully is to become a bigger bully, as recent events have shown.
Europe, of course, will stay dependent on russia in more than one way.
We,ukrainians, will disappear as a people under the onslaught of the russian horde. No, putin does not stop. He destroys anything he is allowed to. And now his appetites are bigger than they were during the Georgian war.
Of course, poroshenko will keep lying and stealing for aslong as he has the means to stay in power.
And democracy, having proven itself impotent in the face of a tyrant with a bomb, will start losing appeal for more and more people. Gradually. Perhaps this generation will still be civilized enough. Next one? Who knows.

Anyhow they showed that at tv. It is a conflict arosen after and within the WOII and the Stalin doctrine of how to rule economy causing 5-7 millions were killed in Ukrain and of course the economical collapse of USSR in 1991. Herr Glauck said that Russia still can join Europe. What is that meaning? Europe is different from the EU and still EU politicians are always talking about Europe. So expansion of the EU which is supported by NAVO and without extending borders? It is to be remarked that the media overhere are always talking about corruption, human rights in the Russian Federation as if geopolitics consists of human rights? Take a look at the history of the ‘Middle East’ full of war initiated by west-eu and the USA/UK for oil revenues and Syria which seems to be a geopolitical war as well just to deliver gas through Syria to the EU. Hello, if that is true the EU/USA/UK has to be blamed.

Putin is dreaming when he talks about substituting Russian goods for those produced in the global economy. Russia can barely make a quality car let alone a commercial jet. And foreign multinationals will have little incentive to invest in Russia if protectionism reigns and imports are restricted. Protectionism also provides rents for those government officials and Putin cronies who make the rules and red tape, further amplifying the well documented corruption in the Putin government.
