Hello, I'm posting first time after about 4-5 years lurking here.
First off, i would say that Ukraine for Russia is not even like Quebec for Canada, but more like Scotland to England even closer if you consider that
first historical Russian capital is Kiev. Sure there are people now in Ukraine that will claim that they are true offspring's of Kievan Rus and not
modern Russia, but it is lame excuse we always look at more powerful entity that emerged during the history as the "rightful son". Ruric dynasty
started to rule in Kiev in about 9-th century, later capital moved to Moscow and from 17-th century the dynasty of Romanov ruled over Russia from
Moscow and St-Petersburg. By the way Romanov dynasty was more German and not ethnic Russian. After Peter the Great which is considered 100% ethnic
Russian they progressively became more and more German with each generation. So, that every wife of Russian Emperor was German woman, btw Katherine
the great was 100% German princess.
In that sense Russia become more Europe oriented since 1700-ties and could've become member of NATO in the beginning of 200-ties if more western
politicians and diplomats thought like topic starter. Unfortunately, there was no personal chemistry between Obama and Putin and the things
deteriorated very quickly. USA was interested to destabilize Ukraine and to weaken Russia, they sponsored winter 2014 Maidan. It happened partly
because Obama doesn't understand Russia and perhaps underestimating Russian nation. It is true Russians and Ukrainians may look dumb for a long time
fighting each other, but in case of massive boots on the grounds operation either by Europe or USA I expect a lot of resistance even from Ukrainian
nationals. For better or worse conventional large scale war is very unlikely on the Ukrainian/Russian soil. After few tactical nukes in Novorossiya,
which, btw, I don't know who will use first, the war will quickly turn into 10 minutes war with Intercontinental ballistic missiles.
I'm not sure yet it will be called ww3, since i still don't see the reasons for China to join on either side. China may join winning force and try
to occupy Siberia if Russia lose or occupy South Chinese disputed islands , Taiwan may be even Japan if Russia win. Sure win or lose is not exactly
good definitions in the case of Nuclear fallout, but still there will be one side more damaged and destroyed than the other. But as i said China will
take wait and see position, so is all other Asian countries. In essence we will see western world fights his very close cousin (Russia) and "white
man" will kill another "white man", so afterwards in the history this war will be known the final 3-rd act of white race self destruction.
