Regarding crimea not having casualties, you do realize thyre under total russian military control and they never had "an uprising" the likes of
which east is dealing with.
If east ukraine had 20-30000 ukrainian armed troops take over BEFORE any uprising, if they would have guarded their borders properly, the east would
be busy voting for separation instead of having street shoot outs.
Then the numb nuts tried that bs in Odessa and that was a bad move logistically. Most of eastern europe would love a run at russia given the
opportunity for the good old soviet slavery days, but its nit gonna happen. If russia would even be successful at breaching the NATO perimeter, they
will have an afghanistan on their hands to deal with, except the entire population would like to see them dead, not just guerilla groups.
Russia NEEDS crimea. They dont need eastern ukraine. They will however use it as a buffer and a satellite country in terms of military strategy.
As for NATO, theres no interest in Ukraine, theres more interest in waking up from being dormant for almost 2 decades.
