Ukraine : War Fatigue

It has been 3 months since the Russian invasion and no off-ramps are in sight. It appears that a tense military standoff along the 2014 line is more or less what we can expect, according to this article in Unherd.

Now, despite tens of thousands of lives lost, all Putin has achieved is moving that front line a little further to the West, and the region seems set for the same kind of standoff it has seen for the past eight years, only on a larger scale.

The threat of a war nobody can win and nobody can end offers up a whole host of new problems, humanitarian, military, economic and political, for Russia, for Ukraine and for the West.

Does anyone envisage  a  more optimistic scenario?
