This is a most interesting analysis But one salient fact is missing: Kiev has already broken from the Right Sector who recently announced that they were on their way back to Kiev to overthrow Poroshenko. They regard him as a Russian agent and think he set them up for annihilation in the East. The Ukies performance in the war does seem to be almost unnaturally inept and you could legitimately muse on whether there might be some truth in their suspicions.

Would he not then have realized that a way-out must be found and that only Russia could provide it? Would he not have realized that this way-out depended on taking out the neo-fascists? Once enough of them have been consumed in the “cauldrons” the negotiations can begin in earnest. That point may have already been reached- we’ll know this week.
