Russia should cut off Caucasus from its body and let that region become independent... but that would of course lead to a Turkish and NATO influence of that region and turn Caucasus into a new violent Iraq and Syria. The violence would then spread into Russia... and Europe would have a new wave of refugees to care for.

For someone with no name you sure draw a lot of conclusions. Nato is already in the Caucasus, Turkey is already prevalent in west Georgia and Abkhazia . Violence has always flourished in southern Russia and over a haft million refugees are already in Russia due to the war in east Ukr. So get a life, anonymouse

Would be great!:) But judging by how the West represents us in their media, pop media and other stupid shows, they are going to shell us by tomahawks in the best case for us.
