War News Updates is run by a Russian expat from Ukraine. He covers conflicts all over the planet and is especially invaluable now for his knowledge and insight on Ukraine. He has not expressed his personal views on Ukraine except to say he fears his homeland is splintering into violence. There can be 10-20 posts a day, generally links to other articles, sometimes with succinct commentary.
