5. The problem with cutting them loose

and letting Russia absorb them is that it would move the border closer to Kiev. What's to say that Russia decides they want the whole ball of wax? They keep making similar claims (they are being threatened by NATO, ethnic Russians are being mistreated, etc.) about what is happening in what is left of Ukraine and it starts over again.

Apparently this time instead of using the ballot boxes as trash cans, they've decided to rig the local election to suit their own needs.
