I can’t get any takers on this discussion over at OTB, presumably because there’s no partisan advantage to be gained from it, but why is Ukraine a country at all?
If your answer is “self-determination”, why should Ukraine be a country by virtue of self-determination but Crimea shouldn’t? How about Donetsk? How about the southwest corner of Valutina Avenue in Donetsk?
Once we’ve got that nailed down we might be prepared to tackle why we should support the present Ukraine.
