The right sector of Ukraine must be banned from political process. Any group with violent ideology should be banned.
The same should happen in other countries including Russia, Pakistan etc.
It is not hard to determine what constitutes violent ideology - racial profiling, intolerance of other religions or ethnic groups, desire for racial superiority etc.

How on earth can Putin agree to a truce if he isn't behind the rebel violence? Hmm...
The war is not just against Russia - it is against Russian speaking people. The Ukrainian fascists want to exterminate Russian speaking people. This is the reason why this war is so dangerous.
The fact is Ukrainian nationalism is phony. The militia is using Nazi symbols. There is no Ukrainian nationalism. It is just sentiments whipped out of nothing.
Russia has to fight due to the nature of war. It is not about a piece of land. It is about survival of Russia.
I do not support Russian ultra-nationalists.
However you forget that Russia is faced with a very difficult challenge of facing off NATO.
NATO has become very aggressive against Russia.
Such situation has resulted in Russian ultra-nationalists gaining an upper hand in society.
