"Funny, that how the Russian aggression against Ukraine at a supposed prospect of Ukraine MAYBE in the future seeking alliances as a guarantee against Russian aggression has precipitated an undeclared but de-facto war between the two." That is well-stated. But there does seems to be a real division within Ukraine between those who want to be closer to Russia and those who want to be closer to the West, so Russia is propping up those who take the most extreme position on one side of that dispute, and is quite effectively keeping the country (which is politically corrupt as well as politically divided) as a whole in a kind of limbo. Altogether an unholy mess which Russia has interest in keeping in that state.
