Protracted dirty war

That's what we are likely to see in Ukraine in the foreseeable future.

Russia is reportedly recruiting mercenary soldiers in Syria at present with monthly salary offerings of $8,000. These soldiers will likely be put on the front lines to confront Ukrainian forces while Russian soldiers with more technical skills will operate in the background, launching missiles, etc.

And, as usual, civilians will bear the brunt of the violence from an ever more ruthless bunch of soldiers operating under Russia's flag.

The legacy of all this will be a seething hatred reaching far into the future.
