Putin can't afford Donbas

The crisis in eastern Ukraine is putting a heavy strain on the Russian economy so President Putin should do all he can to ensure the ceasefire holds, political scientist Ellie Knott writes on the London School of Economics' blog EUROPP: "A ceasefire is clearly in Russia's interests, with sanctions continuing to damage Russia's economy, and a lack of popular support for annexation. Russians are already realising that, in a fragile economy, inheriting Crimea was costly enough and inheriting Donetsk and Lugansk would incur even more costs, not least because of the sheer destruction that fighting has caused and because of the further sanctions Russia would incur as a result."
