I’m far from being up to speed on all this, but as far as I can tell, the majority in the eastern half of the country do indeed want to align with Russia. I see the country peacefully splitting in half pretty soon, and everyone being relatively happy about it.
Hello its Russian agents who are trying to redo the Georgian invasion playbook.
Are you happy tyrant Putin a KGB dictator is invading the Ukraine !
Putin is now offering Russian passports to all Ukrainians who want them. Only requirement is that they speak Russian.
Ukraine is starting to split apart.
The Bandera Nazis will get Lviv.
Odessa wants to be independent of both Ukraine and Russia and want nothing to do with the Bandera Nazis and want them to leave.
Kherson, Nikolaev want to remain Ukraine and not be part of Russia, but also want nothing to do with the Bandera Nazis.
Crimea, Donetsk, Lugansk, and Kharkiv will leave Ukraine with Putin’s help and affiliate in some form with Russia.
Who knows what will happen to Kiev.
That’s my prayer.
Putin won’t be happy with a half a country.
