Any Russian takeover of Ukraine will be to control the entire length of the Dneiper - called the Nistru in Romanian.

That would also give Moscow a land bridge to Transnistria whose Slavs want to be incorporated into the Motherland.

A rump Ukrainian state will left to the north and the west of the Dnieper.

Of course assuming a political solution to the current crisis is not in the cards.

So by necessity in that scenario Kiev would remain under Russian control...interesting.
