Probably true, at least for the time being, though I'm taking a wait-and-see approach before I update my oldest cities quiz, which is now inaccurate for the same reason.

That's the most ludicrous thing. While Russia's foolhardy, overly aggressive attempt left much to be desired, the Crimeans do not show any indication of ever wanting to be part of Ukraine, and appear to have joined Russia willingly. Not to mention they have never been part of any form of a Ukrainian state except for the brief post-Russian Revolution period in which Ukraine also controlled vast swathes of the Caucasus, which no one is in a hurry to "return" to them today. To compare it to the rats in ISIS is insane.

How about you accept "hunger" for "famine"? You die of hunger and a shortage of food when people start dying of hunger is famine.

Could you allow 'nuclear missiles'? Seems a bit odd that it's not allowed while 'nukes' is.

Although those separatists in the Donbass are indeed most likely Ukrainian citizens with Russian ethnicity, I think the more appropriate/neutral term is "pro-Russian separatists". ("Russian separatists" would make to obvious that these lands are indeed "Russian lands"...;-) )
