No way just 288 people died in Ukraine, according to a volunteer project which tracks (pro-)Russian casualties at least 527 of them were killed in 2017…

Yeah, you are right. Wikipedia said 288, Uppsala said 409 and this says 527 for Russians alone. Thanks for pointing it out.

Notice how the more homogenous societies have less armed conflict with each other. Not blaming one group or another, I'm just saying that humans in general are racist in nature, black, white, Asian, Jewish, you name it.

That is certainly a factor, although economic conditions and the actions of great powers tends to have a bigger role.

Well I have difficulty believing that argument especially when Italy has had a similar crisis in their economy and yet they seem to be more peaceful than Germany while Germany is more fiscally responsible. France and Britain are also wealthier societies than Poland and Hungary, yet Poland and Hungary don't seem to have the same conflicts. Though economics probably does play a factor because another thing humans are good at is blaming one another.
