I’m travelling, so instead of a blog post on the #AzovSea crisis, a twitter thread. Bottom line: unless mishandled, this is not a prelude to war. It is #Russia|n aggression vs #Ukraine, but limited in scope. (No justification tho that is) /1

Thus is demonstrates military and (geo)political preponderance, but in what is intended as a limited way. /3
