Cleanup[edit]

The template is overcrowded, it requires a cleanup. There's a whole section that might be deleted completely - Main places. A reader won't be able to read almost anything about this conflict following those links for cities. Maybe somewhat related are Donetsk and Luhansk airports, but there's a couple of dedicated articles for battle of Donetsk airport already exist. If there's no criterion that describes the content of that section, I propose to delete it. --VoidWanderer (talk) 23:19, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Split navbox[edit]

This navbox is one of the largest I have ever encountered on Wikipedia. (Previous contender was {{Mars}} before it was split.) I would suggest splitting it into digestible chunks, for example:

  • {{Ukrainian crisis}} would keep the essentials, i.e. background, general topics, proclaimed states and political events excerpted from the timeline of "other events". It could also keep some of the political figures involved, but not the military ones.
  • {{War in Donbass}} would receive the topics specific to the war, i.e. the war section + the military figures excerpted from the pro-Russian and Ukrainian sections, and the military events excerpted from the timeline.
  • The "Main places" section should move to {{Geography of Ukraine}} or be deleted entirely, as suggested by another editor above.
