"It would appear that Putin's war in Ukraine (between ostensible brothers of the "Slavic-Orthodox Civilization") would put the final nail in the coffin of the failed prognostication." I find it difficult to agree with this statement, as this clash has among other things to do with a much greater connection of the region which is now the state of Ukraine to what can be broadly called the Western European cultural space. Even if we put aside the historical facts (which in my opinion prove that fundamental difference between the Ukrainian and the Russian historical development), from the Russian as well as the Ukrainian internal point of view this war is all about the clash of civilizations, one side striving to be something more similar to what China represents and the other sticking to the US-European model. So actually one could argue this war pretty much supports Huntington's theory.
