Many people in Western Ukraine are more culturally attached to Russia.

The Strong opposition to Russia comes from the Nationalists in the East, who criticise those in the west for not being as strongly opposed to Russia. Many people will just leave and live in peace somewhere else or just revert to living under Russian influence. In the West of Ukraine they will fight an eternal war. That's what I hear from the refugees here that are from the East. Let them have it, I'm not going back anyway.

Putin will f*ck it up in the long term and he will end up being kicked out when the area becomes an economic burden.

Putin needs to play crusader kings, like he's trying to control one of the most difficult to conquer territories on the planet, and really the only effective way to hold that territory is to conquer the rest of the fxcking black sea first. The Caucuses run themselves and they only let anyone else believe otherwise when it's convenient for the Caucuses.

The best hope for a quick end to this is if Putin is assassinated.

Really? I think that'd drag it out. It's not like there's great people in that line of succession?

Usually the successor of an assassinated leader will change course. His biggest motivation is not getting assassinated himself.

Yeah but with these guys it absolutely wouldn't be a good course. Putin is actually a step up from most of them in both the morality and intelligence department, and that's not a defense of Putin that's just a fairly neutral assessment of that consortium of mobsters and Ex-KGB that is the Russian government. Like, would the cease hostilities with the Ukrainian government? I mean maybe, but only if they could drat up Ukraine and another country at the same time for more money.

Again the people in Western Ukriane don't need to be "conquered" they would be happy to be under Russian rule. Putin doesn't want to conquer the rest of Ukraine. He has grabbed what he wanted and the people in that area will be complicit in the annexation of this area.

Ukrainian Nationalists in the rest of the country can stamp their feet for 100 years but this is a done deal now. What it does for the future economy and reputation of Russia is another matter.

Putin wants to claim that Ukraine territory; then he thinks that will give him justification to continue attacking. He’ll just say he’s defending Russian territory.

Btw, Putin just showed the world how weak the Russian military is. If Russia had no nukes, the Ukrainian army would’ve already been on the march towards Moscow.
