Drawing a blank
We can pour money in to Ukraine, but fundamentally, its cheaper for Russia to burn Ukraine to the ground than it is for Ukraine to secure its borders.
The same goes for Georgia
Chechnya is as mad as ISIS so although we could food them with arms, they'd point them as us equally.
Japan could possibly be goaded in to striking out, enough to split the Tsars attentions, but in the long run, that just opens doors for China to walk through.
So, I wouldnt expect Ukraine to get better soon. The resources required to protect Ukraine are hundreds of times above those required to burn bits of it to the ground, Russia doesnt need the rule of law, it merely needs to prove that Ukraine cant sustain it.
