It's interesting that neighboring Belarus now appears to be changing its stance on Ukraine, with a decidedly wary note creeping into officially approved statements on the situation. The restoration of the Soviet Union may not prove to be the walk in the park that the Russian leadership apparently thinks it will.

What happens on or after March 16 will be crucial not only for Ukraine but also for Europe as a whole. The massive buildup of Russian military forces on Ukraine's eastern border indicates that Russia plans an invasion of the Ukrainian mainland - but it's an operation that may have unintended consequences that will lead to the collapse and breakup of Russia itself.
