A Modest Proposal: the Crimean Purchase

I interrupt this blogging of "A Proof of Self-Proof" to offer this modest proposal:

How about if Russia buys Crimea from Ukraine? The method is simple; Russia need merely pay off Ukraine’s foreign debt (which of course no-one expected to recoup), and in exchange Ukraine lets Crimea go without objections. Of course it’s a forced sale, and pricey, but it’s cheaper than war, or even long-term diplomatic tensions.
         But hard on the Tatars, of course...
