Open Question: What are the chances that
Is there a chance that Russia invades most of Ukraine? If so, how great are these chances?
I was wondering, because Russia has a lot of business ties with Ukraine and there are many Russian owned busninesses in Ukraine. War would destroy those businesses and be very damaging for both countries.
Ukraine has strengthened it's military considerably since 2014, but it is still no match for Russia's military.
It has been said by several experts that if there was a Russian invasion, the best Ukraine could do would be to stop the Russian forces at the huge Dnieper River. But that would mean that Russia would of still taken a huge chunk of Ukraine, including cities like Kharkiv, Poltava, Sumy, Mariupol. Chernihiv, Melitopol, Berdyansk as well as most of Zaporizhzhia and the Eastern parts of Kiev and Dnipro. That's not including Donetsk and Luhansk which would probably the first cities to come under direct Russian rule, if they are not already at this present time.
All this is speculation given by several political and strategy experts, but in reality, what are the chances of such a Russian invasion, given the costs that both nations would have to incur?

Open Question: How safe is it for US
I'm planning on visiting Ukraine but some people say it's "war torn" right now. No doubt. But how safe is it to visit Z-town or Dnepropetrovsk? Don't tell me to visit the Embassy website because I have already. I was thinking of teaching English there. The website says don't try to go to Crimea or Lugansk. It is hell on earth there. How safe is Odessa? Rivne? Cherkassy? Sumy? Any ideas?

Open Question: Sumy, Ukraine vs other
The Wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_pro-Russian_unrest_in_Ukraine features a map of Ukraine which highlights Ukraine's pro-Russia oblasts. All of the pro-Russia oblasts border either Russia or the Black sea. It would seem to make sense that the pro-Russia areas of Ukraine are those that are directly accessible from Russia. But I noticed that the only oblast bordering Russia which isn't indicated as being pro-Russia is Sumy (with the exception of Chernihiv, which shares most of its national border with Belarus, and a smaller portion with Russia).
I was wondering: What it is about Sumy (perhaps in terms of topography) and/or its people that makes it different (e.g, not separatist) from all the other Ukrainian oblasts which border Russia/the Black Sea?
