Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The point I wanted to make is that the only war that definitely wouldn't have happened without Russian involvement is the annexation of Crimea. The broader civil war probably would have started anyway, except of course that the separatists would most likely have lost by now.
And I'm not disputing that the Tatar minority now faces considerable repression, just that I haven't heard anything credible about mass expulsions.
