This report delves into the potential ramifications of a dire scenario: a Russian war in Ukraine resulting in the occupation of all or most of Ukrainian territory by Russian forces. Such a scenario is built upon both declared and implied Russian ambitions.

The primary aim of this report is to illuminate the Western audience about the far-reaching and destructive consequences of a potential Russian victory. It underscores why it is in the interest of Western nations to take all necessary measures to prevent this outcome. Consequently, the report emphasizes the crucial importance of Western defence, financial, and humanitarian support.
