@txag70 I get the impression that the Russians were half expecting Ukrainians to accept them as liberators.

When they didn't, Russia switched from Plan "Anschluss with Austria" to Plan "Slice off the Sudetenland from Czechoslovakia".

As I see it, there's only two possible outcomes of this war:

1) Russia wins and chops off the southern and eastern pro-Russian parts of Ukraine;
2) Russia loses, Ukraine remains intact, but has to expel all its pro-Russians the same way Czechoslovakia expelled its Germans after WW2.

The thing is, Ukraine would be far better off if it kept its Black Sea coastline. Unfortunately, it's also the part of the country mainly inhabited by ethnic Russians.
