Belarus - OBLITERATED
Poland - OBLITERATED
Ukraine - OBLITERATED
Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia - OBLITERATED

Can Russia win this war with Ukraine, in view of the overwhelming support of NATO?
Russia lost their illegal war the moment they started it. They never had a chance at wng. They have constantly been moving the goalposts back further and further as the continue to lose. They foolishly thought they would conquer Ukraine within days and overthrow their government. Now they are struggling to even take and hold tiny bits of eastern territory after having had their asses kicked in and around Kyiv and other parts of the country.

If Russia wins the war with Ukraine, how will NATO react?
The Ukrainian armed forces are wearing the Russians down, the Russians when they do grow a pair will overthrow their current dr and their military will withdraw with their tails between their legs.
When this occurs, Ukraine will be fast tracked into both NATO and the EU, Russia will remain in recession for at least a decade or more

Would a general war between NATO and Russia be any worse for Ukraine than the current situation?
Armed conflict between major nuclear powers dramatically raise the chances of nuclear war, and nuclear war would be bad for everyone on the planet, Ukraine included.
Neighboring Poland would be far less safe for Ukrainian refugees and far less able to render the assistance they’ve been providing thus far.
Military aid currently flowing from NATO to Ukraine could be slowed as NATO attention and resources would suddenly be divided among other pressing defense priorities.
You could argue some things could benefit Ukraine, such as an extremely powerful alliance fighting on their side, distracting and destroying their common enemy, but you can’t really get past #1 above. The increased possibility of global annihilation ought to be enough to settle the debate.

Militarily, none. If Russia wins look for Sweden and Finland to speed up their applications for NATO.
But the country in the most trouble will be Moldova. No doubt she will try to get an expedited application through because she is next on Putin’s list if he is somehow able to defeat Ukraine.

If Russia wins the war against Ukraine, what will NATO and its allies do?
I would imagine they will support ongoing insurrection, sabotage and assassination of Russians within the country. It’s one thing to conquer a nation as big as the Ukraine - it’s another to hold it. The Germans tried and they failed. And they had a REAL army with REAL soldiers.

If Russia can’t defeat Ukraine, how could they win a war with NATO?
Which kind of war are we talking about? While NATO will highly likely win the conflict with Russia, when it comes to nuclear weapons involved…. unfortunately, no clear winner will be alive to answer this question.

If war breaks out between Ukraine and Russia, should the United States or NATO get involved?
Ukraine is not part of NATO and their alliance with the United States is not nearly as strong as the U.S. - Japan or U.S. - ROK alliances. Therefore, the idea of sending American troops to defend Ukraine is questionable.
The U.S. considers Ukraine somewhat important, but Ukraine is not a core interest. The U.S. will not get into a direct confrontation with Russia unless a very important core interest is threatened and there a solid level of public support for such a decision.
The kind of military assistance Secretary Pompeo pledged probably involves weapons sales, intelligence sharing, black ops, air & space surveillance, and diplomatic and economic pressure on Russia.
If Ukraine goes to war with Russia, the U.S. will provide limited assistance. However, it is highly unlikely that we will go to war with the 2nd most powerful country in the world over a more or less insignificant country. Ukraine’s leaders have been untrustworthy in the past and putting our eggs in their basket is not prudent. The best way to stop a possibly horrific Russo-Ukrainian war is to make Russia’s constant encroachments and harassment of Ukraine unacceptably expensive and difficult.
