Putin has basically gone from apparatchik to blagging Yeltsin's job because the oligarchs liked him and his boss was a pisshead.
Also robbing the country blind, read somewhere he's one of the richest men in the world, can't remember his personal fortune figures, but he's obviously used the country as his private till. Not bad for a guy who used to be a security guard

So with the draft this is the definitely dragging on for a while longer then? Feels a bit like the De Jong saga - going round and round and round (allllll the people, so many people)

It’s Russia. They just throw wave after wave of their own men at it until the thing they’re fighting over is reduced to rubble

So, it seem that Putin's master plan is currently as follows:

Sure up the defence of the annexed regions ASAP where they'll hold the referenda (I very much doubt he's going to try and take the whole country, but maybe grab one or two more cities and draw a line in the sand).

Win the rigged referenda and declare the regions part of Russia, after which he'll end the 'special military operation' and declare it was a victory.

Leave a massive military presence in those regions and transport a shit load of more heavy weaponry into them.

Then threaten anyone who attacks the expanded Russian territory (including supplying the weapons to anyone who attacks it), with all out destruction. If the Ukrainians keep trying to retake the land that was stolen from them, he'll claim to have the right to raze Kiev to the ground.

So, the question is, what should the response be from Zelensky and the West?

Personally, I don't think we should risk WW3 or going nuclear over it. But, likewise we can't just do nothing. All I can think of is that Iron Curtain 2.0 will get drawn, and that Russia will be more ostracised than it ever has been in the past.

Any better ideas???

There's no way Russia would have the balls to Nuke America. No chance. Instead it would be us and probably germany/brussels that get it.

and there's no chance america would start lobbing nukes about to defend anyone else either.

Putin has the mental capacity (incapacity?) to do it I reckon, although it will be the end of the world as we know it. A complete Skynet style blowout. But you'd hope if it got to that point that the chain of command would realise that it would be suicide for pretty much everyone on Earth to follow through with any command to unleash nukes, and therefor not really in their best interests either.
