What happens when Ukraine's attacks on former breakaway republics becomes attacks on newly acquired, or perhaps reacquired, Russian territory?

That's the big question. My take is Putin's plan is this:

1. Annex the currently occupied territories to Russia and declare them under the nuclear deterrent umbrella
2. Bring the newly called up reservists in as an occupation / defensive army
3. Declare the Special Operation complete and a success

The problem is that by all appearances Ukraine has seized the initiative in the war and I don't think they or their western backers will want to stop pressing, they will want to test this red line. What is the Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times". Yeah
