As of May 2016, it appears that Vladimir Putin has succeeded in
establishing a "frozen conflict" in the Donbas similar to that existing
in Transnistria, Abkhazia and areas elswhere in the former Soviet
Union. The occupied territories have become an outpost for further
Russian imperialist expansion, which may explode at any moment.
Nevertheless, despite the endemic corruption within the rest of Ukraine
and the refusal of the Oligarchs to permit reforms, occasional
positive articles appear in the press that do not fit nicely in the negative
"Issues:" categories in the right-hand column of the WiZeus page. (In
the past, positive articles were often highlighted in green.) I have
decided to add a "Miscellaneous" category to host positive articles and
other articles that do not fit nicely in the other categories.
The first two such articles are by Peter Dickinson and Timothy Snyder.
