".....I need a feedback about something. On the 14th of February, Duma will consider the proposal of recognition of Donbass republics.Could it be the trigger for Kiev's intervention in Donbass?Is there a strong possibility for acceptance of this proposal, next week? scratch What do you guys think? dunno ......."
in my view , if without recognition , there can be no military help to save the lives of the people against an attack , then recognition is needed . Since likely that Kiev will attack , as without an attack it can not stay in power . But if help can still be provided , without recognition , then this offers advantages politically . Since present international borders remain unchanged . Forceful change of borders , should be avoided , as far as possible . My solution for any change in borders is through a public vote . But who is eligible to vote ? Well the lives of all those who will be affected by the vote . And this is not as simple to determine as it seems .
Compare this situation to the Kurdish problem . Should Kurds only have a vote on forming separate country ? How about non-kurds , who live in Kurdish areas ? How about non-kurds who live in Syria , those that will be cut off from neighbours by a separatist vote ? How about the people in Turkey or Iran , who will have their countries torn apart as a result of separate homeland for Syrian Kurds ? So we see that , there are consequences for many people . And they should all have a vote on the issue . And if all people in Syria and Iraq and Turkey and Iran had a say in the vote , it is obvious that there should be no separate Kurdish region or nation . We can apply this to the situation in the EU or the conflict in Israel/ Palestine . A vote over Eastern Ukraine , should extend to Ukraine and Russia at least . Who else could be affected by a separation of Eastern Ukraine ? Certainly not the British or the Yanks !
