An Unconventional Opinion on Ukraine-Russia proxy war!
I call the "Russo-Ukrainian war" a proxy war. It is difficult to see it beyond the "proxy lens”. Russia annexes Crimea in 2014; arguably, Crimea is an autonomous Ukrainian territory. I can think of other ‘autonomous’ examples such as Palestine, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Scotland, Northern Ireland. It begs the question what is “autonomous”? These proto states cannot fully claim independent territorial integrity or nationhood if stronger actors potentially claim a slice of meat when the moment calls.
