If the four-sided meeting in Geneva will take place at all, then let me make a little prediction about the results.
No tensions will ease. Why?
To ease tensions the Russian side should have an intension to ease tensions.
Russias plan is to escalate tensions under the mask till the outbreak of killing people and then taking in the army.
Have you ever played the famous computer game Civilization? If you have then you know how the situation looks for mr. Putin and his comrades. Why should someone who is planning to invade new countries stop right now when the plan is just half-way.
The real fighting as a reason to bring in real army is just going to happen. It is the sweetest and most exciting point for Russian leaders. The few hundred people who are going to be killed, it does not matter, its a tiny thing.
