3. Russia won't leave of their own volition - Ukraine will have to force them out.

But the more damage sanctions cause to Russia's economy, they less resources they'll have to toss at the war effort.

Start hitting their primary exports, which have so far been excluded from sanctions, and their economy will crumble.

5. I voted something else.

Sanctions will be involved but won't force Putin directly The sanctions will turn other Russians against Putin and they will eliminate him one way or another.

6. They will only leave when the pain of occupation is too great

Or Putin dies

Whichever comes first.

10. I think you might be right, but crashing the ruble by 90% is shockingly

Bad.
