Well, now we have it. After twelve days of assault on Ukraine (it’s hardly a war) the Russians have stated their demands – and they are exactly as we expected and have suggested before.
They want the Crimea to be permanently ceded to Russia, the Russian-speaking eastern republics of Donetsk and Luhansk to be independent, recognised by Ukraine and the rewriting of the Ukrainian constitution as a neutral state which could never, thereby, join NATO. That, basically, is it.
