It is a great shame the west has not done more to help Ukraine.

I agree, Simon. This isn't about the EU, this is about a small nation that Russia hopes to re-subjugate by stealth, as they did in Georgia.

Partition might be the only way to save (at least half) of the country. It's pretty much split down the middle between European Ukraine and a Russian Ukraine.
Ukrainian national identity is a more or less artificial construct from the nineteenth century so it's hardly surprising the country's previous overlords carry so much weight.
