Ukraine Dividing in Two?

Behind the curtain there is a growing opinion that Ukraine should just be split in two and hand the East to Russia and call it a day. This is starting to come down the pipeline and we may see this develop into open debate soon. Not everyone in the East speaks Russian. Donetsk is by far the majority. Nevertheless, it appears that the odds are rising in favor of a split and we will see how things unfold by November. Hot water is produced centrally and that has been turned off in Kiev to save money. This leaves people using stingers (electric rods) to heat the water.
