Stefan Schmitt is a biased author, because:

war crimes committed by both Ukraine and Russia*

It was Russian Federation who invaded Ukraine (Feb 26-27 2014 - first time in this century), therefore it should be "war crimes committed by both Russia and Ukraine"

in the case of the Ukraine war,*

It's not a "Ukraine war", it's a "Russia-Ukraine war"

about tens of thousands of victims on all sides. *

What "all sides" is Stefan Schmitt talking about? There are TWO SIDES directly involved in this war: Russian Federation (Russian army) and Ukraine (Ukrainian army and Ukrainian civilians).

Donetsk People’s Republic*

There is no Donetsk People’s Republic. Especially for an independent and unbiased author. It may be "so called Donetsk People’s Republic" or "self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic", territory occupied by the Russians and the Russians are responsible for everything there.

Though Stefan Schmitt probably is not a biased author, but, let's say, poorly informed one, because:

While talking about so called Donetsk People’s Republic he has never mentioned so called Luhansk People’s Republic, another artificial entity created by the Russians in Ukraine same period of time.

And the author somehow forgot the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, internationally recognized as occupied part of Ukraine, which will become the battle field soon.

So, either Stefan Schmitt is a biased or poorly informed author, this is not his best article on the Russian-Ukrainian war.
