    You'd just have NATO states firing into Ukraine claiming they're preventing a genocide. And Russia can't fire into NATO because they haven't attacked Russia proper.

    The outcome would still be Russia bogged down in Ukraine, and lots of people dying.

      Nah. If Kiev fell in three days you can bet the Germans and French would've forced through another Minsk treaty style deal that would've left Ukraine crippled and let Putin secure his gains. You're forgetting how much everyone was a chicken shit for the first week except for the UK, Poland and the Baltics.
      Zelensky not running away and the AFU not performing an ANA style collapse was something most western leaders and Putin didn't see coming.

        Bruh, the plan was to annex Ukraine in its entirety and cleanse the location from the local culture, as per their pre-planned articles automatically posted on the third day of the invasion. There wouldn't be no "crippled Ukraine" left.
        The cleansing part would most likely involve:
        - mass killings of "problematic people" (current and ex-military, patriots, local inteligencia, etc), for whom mass graves were prepared (they literally created a state standard for this right before the invasion);
        - population replacement with a ton of locals getting sent to siberia (projects which the russian MoD officially called "eco settlements" and was planning to develop) and pidors from russia sent into Ukraine to take their place;
        Western homosexuals from would look the other way and pretend this didn't happen, similarly how they did in previous times such shit was done by russians.

      The Russians have a long history of successfully grinding down European insurgencies. Obviously there would be a lot fewer Russian casualties than in conventional war. There would probably be a lot more Ukrainian civilians in mass graves too.

    It would have been unbelievable in terms of bloodshed. Right now every Ukrainian ultranationalist type (and there are a lot of those, even before the invasion) can be part of the armed forces as regulars. But if the government fell, every last one of them would have become various flavors of rebels, militias, bandits, partisans, saboteurs, spies, and in many cases just straight-up terrorists. You'd have guys strapping bombs to themselves in every subway station in Moscow. You'd have guys setting up a PKP in some random window of a commie block just to get the slightest chance at killing Putin & co every time they walk outside. There would be even less air traffic in and out of Russia than there is now, because while today they have to jump through hoops to avoid legal blocks, in that alternate reality they simply would never even try, after a couple of passenger jets got downed by MANPADs.

    Basically, they would show Muslims what a REAL insurgency looks like. They would make the Taliban, ISIS, etc look like a fricking joke with how brutal they would get.

      I can expand on the picrel post. My colleague, a 50+ y.o. boomer, a "sales manager" (not really, just a bidder kek) in a small IT contractor. Originally from the eastern part of the country which got occupied in 2014. A person of simple tastes and a history enthusiast. Hates russians with a passion, so went to makeshift TDF on first day of the invasion. Imagine a 50+ y.o. boomer in a track pants, coat, with barely any gear outside an AK and a couple of mags.
      Well, they were split into groups of about a dozen such TDF randoms (basically civilians who were wild enough for such shit), with 1-2 actual soldiers guiding every such group. Their main activity were ambushes and sneak attacks. Imagine a group of russians stopping almost like in the middle of the forest, because they had to wait for commands, fuel or something like that. They'd launch a surprise attack on the pidors, waste a bunch of them, then loot everything which made sense or was easy to take with them without taking too much time and scatter. Usually there was no time to take the transport, armor and such, because other pidors were always potentially just 5-10 minutes away, so usually it was just disabled/burned.
      This is basically how a ton of those TDF guys actually got gear for themselves: a ton of russian guns, mags, grenades, RPGs, body armor, NVGs and such were looted from dead pidors as a result of such attacks.
      They were doing such stuff for like 2-3 weeks around the outskirts of the Kyiv region and partially in the Chernihiv region. Then this guy got booted off TDF because they had issues controlling him kek. Which kinda makes sense, he's a very initiative driven guy, and his hatred of russians probably didn't help him follow orders, especially from some twentysomething soldier.

          Please don't be too autistic, my brother. In this specific case "boomer" is used a generic slang name for an old person. A 30 y.o. colleague would call me a boomer, just because I'm a decade older than him. A 22 y.o. colleague would call that 30 y.o. colleague a boomer.

    I can't answer the question until (You) specify: why precisely WOULD Kyiv fall in three days in your scenario? Complete apathy from all 40,000,000 Ukrainian citizens? A Russian Army somehow not hollowed out by decades of corruption and incompetence? Every other nation in the globe simultaneously developing a blind spot and refusing to interfere? The Ayyyyys landed and changed the fabric of reality so that the quisling puppet government was already in place when the Russians ran out of fuel in a 40 km convoy?

      people have a romanticized view of resistance and think the bad guys lose every time, when in fact it's very easy to suppress a resistance when you don't have to worry about stuff like human rights and optics. it's as easy as shooting them all and burying the bodies somewhere.

        Eh, not really. By being brutal you only make more people want to kick you out. Every successful. In Afghanistan, for every dead Taliban, they'd get two new recruits. You don't beat an insurgency by trying to kill off all its members.

        That's actually not an easy task. You can shoot some of them, but you can't get them all in one go. And, as mentioned before, that only makes them grow.

    When people say "why does the West fight insurgencies with such pussified rules" one only has to look at the Russian approach. It turns out that when you are unambiguously going to rape the whole country bloody, the people living there will fight you to the death.

    Within living memory the Russians tried to completely destroy their country, abolish their language, deport their people to Siberia and replace them with Russians, stole everything that could fit on a train car and the world was generally apathetic to these things as they happened.

    It took the USSR, still fresh off WW2 with hundreds of thousands of veteran troops and officers, almost two decades to mostly put down the Ukrainian resistance movement the last time they tried this. This was fighting an element that was totally isolated from any international support, geographically and politically. Even then there were areas that were essentially no-go zones for anything but reinforced convoys all the way into the 80s.

    Right now there is an effort to constrain the amount of warcrimes on the part of the Ukrops but if they were backed against the wall we would be seeing brutality that would make 90s Yugoslavia look like a circus. International condemnation means nothing if you are dead and what are the Russians going to do in retaliation, kill you even more?

    Russians wouldn't have been able to maintain control over Kyiv over how awful their logistics were/are, ultimately the occupation wouldn't have lasted more than a few days, with russians eventually being forced to a retreat unless they end up annihilated by encroaching ukrainian forces and lack of supplies.
