Best case scenario a new deal will be worked out allowing Ukraine to join EU/NATO in exchange for ceding The Crimea back to Russia.
Why would Putin ever agree to that? The deal offers him nothing, as he already has the Crimea. And I don't think Putin will ever allow what's left of the Ukraine to join NATO. No more than we would have allowed Mexico to join the Warsaw Pact.

But he probably would have economic sanctions placed on Russia as a result, a negotiated solution would remove those sanctions.
