Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Perhaps the situation in Kiev will 'improve', from Putin's point of view, over then next few months, so he does not feel impelled to invade. And after a year of so of IMF 'aid' much of eastern and southern Ukraine will be clamoring for union with Russia, and much of the Ukrainian military might support them.
