Although Ukrainian forces have trained to carry out an insurgency after the war if needed, Russia has plans of its own for Ukraine that include both military and diplomatic counterinsurgency strategies. The overarching outcome Russia seeks is to divide Ukraine into multiple entities and ensure that a potential Western Ukraine is hobbled so it poses no threat to Russian and pro-Russian forces in the east.
The course Russia’s assault on Ukraine takes will depend on three main factors: the state of the conflict in Ukraine, Russia’s domestic political situation, and the Western and global reaction to the war of aggression.
Moscow’s buildup near Ukraine has thus far been more about extracting concessions from NATO than preparing for an invasion. Nevertheless, a conventional military conflict could still happen despite the strong consequences it would incur from the U.S. and its Western allies.
