Stalin arbitrarily chopped off parts of Poland to make it more manageable.

Putin has a point when he said the Communists repeatedly redrew national boundaries without paying attention to the ethnic composition of the population or national interests involved.

Ukraine is an artificial state. I’ll be surprised if it lasts in its current form.

So is the Russian Far East. But Russia has nukes. You got a billion Chicoms sitting right there but Moscow rules. If Ukraine had nukes and a strong military they would be just fine right now.

Ukrainians comprise 80% of the population of Ukraine. In East and South, despite Russian populations, Ukrainians comprise a majority. During USSR times, there was a massive Russian migration into those regions, so the whole statement is just a fart in the wind.

Ironically, Russia is also an artificial state. I say Russia should be divided up. Especially the Western regions where great natural resources are deposited.

Then we have the Muslims in the Caucasus region. We could foment unrest throughout Mother Russia with ease. And it is likely being planned as we speak.
