Hopefully Ukraine takes back Donbass but its not going to easy.
If they take back Donbass no doubt there is going to be a long drawn out insurgency especially since that province is mainly Russians. I hope they can return Ukrainian refugees that fled there to come back. As long as Russians live there its going to be hard to control that place.
Overall I back Ukraine to take it back. If only they did not lose Crimea. Crimea is more important than Donbass.
