All the best to them, but they will be electing a president of a smaller Ukraine, west of the Dnieper River. Crimea and the east are gone, and it is doubtful that Kiev would be able to govern those areas anyway. A partition of Ukraine is the most likely solution to avoid civil war and stumbling into an even broader conflict.
