MAJOR SECESSIONIST MOVEMENTS IN RUSSIA

Most of the major movements have existed before the collapse of the Soviet Union and attempted to break away in the 90s or 2000s. These movements have some levels of support among the local population, diaspora, local politicians and regional elites. Most of the movements are still small in size.

THE IMPENDING COLLAPSE OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION

Russia is a failed state. It’s been unable to transform itself into a nation-state, a civic state or even a stable imperial state. It is a federation in name only, as the central government pursues a policy of ethnic and linguistic homogenization and denies any powers to the country’s 89 federal subjects, including 21 non-slavic autonomous republics. Russian citizens are not all ethnic Russians and the proportion of ethnic Russians (approximately 80 percent today) is on the decline.

WHAT IF RUSSIA GOES NUCLEAR ?

Scenario 1: Russia could test nuclear weapons as a warning to Ukraine and its supporters, demonstrating both its resolve and capability. A nuclear demonstration would not tilt the balance in favor of either side. The efficacy of even Russia’s most advanced nuclear weapons is likely already known to relevant Western governments, and a test likely would not incentivize Ukraine to capitulate because Kyiv already feels that the conflict is existential.

  2. Ukraine (National Anti-Corruption Bureau; National Agency on Corruption Prevention; National Police of Ukraine).
  3. Bosnia & Herzegovina (Agency for the Prevention of Corruption and Coordination of the Fight Against Corruption).

ATTACKS ON HEALTH CARE IN UKRAINE

Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, there have been numerous airstrikes hitting hospitals or their surroundings.

International humanitarian law (IHL) specifically protects hospitals. The Geneva Conventions and their additional protocols stipulate that the sick and wounded, medical staff, hospitals and mobile medical units may under no circumstances be the object of attack. This also applies to wounded military personnel being treated in the hospital and to armed medical workers- if they are armed to defend their lives and those of the wounded.
