“If they lost Sevastopol, they lose a lot. The Russian Navys access to the Med, the Middle East and beyond into the Atlantic is crippled.”
The Russians are not going to lose Sevastopol any more than we are going give up Gitmo. Sevastopol is more important to the Russians than Gitmo is too us.
So the Sevastopol area will go to Russia.
Putin will probably alow the Ukraine to be swalled up in the EU. $oreA$$ and his fellow looters and rapists of countries will financially ruin the Ukraine like the current poor countries of the EU in about 5 years.
Then the survivors in the Ukraine will beg Russia to take over.
Heh. Ukraine under IMF policies and whatnot becomes Greece II.
They’re already pretty much bust as it is.
I think Crimea will go to the Russians; it’s pretty much a fait accompli as this point now. The Ukrainians will be cheesed, to be sure, but that’s about it.
