It justs go to show that getting rid of a nuisance is a "piece of cake."
On another note: Putin's proposal for a Syrian truce "in March" as he bombs the hell out of Aleppo reminds me of his suggestion at Minsk to make the ceasefire effective "in ten days" --as his troops and surrogates moved on Delbatseve. Poroshenko refused the delay but Putin troops simply ignored the ceasefire until they seized the city. His Syrian proposal is no less a ploy; Putin is simply announcing that he expects to break the back of the Syrian rebels by the end of this month.
