Russia May Be Threatening Ukraine Again, But Any Further Escalation for Them Would Be Counterproductive

Trump looks at three months out to be extremely unlikely to win the election, so one of the deciding factors for the timing would be to start a conflict before Hillary Clinton, who has the exact opposite views on Russia and Ukraine to Trump, inevitably wins. The reason for this is because Clinton has the exact opposite views on Russia and Ukraine, and would take a stronger line on the matter than the current Obama administration.
