Just remember to take into account only a portion of Russia's forces are available for operations in Ukraine. Russia is a large country and they
have potential threats on every border NATO/EU in the West. Turkey, Georgia and other former unhappy Soviet states to the south and China and the
Pacific states of course in the east. And of course the US who can come from any direction. Also potential armed uprising in several of its republics
that need to be kept in check. While Ukraines forced of course are all in Ukraine with one threat to deal with. Also the state of both their
militaries is not what is should be do to corruption and failed reforms.
