Negotiated stalemate:

Obviously this makes the most sense, but I'm not sure the decision makers have any incentive to make it happen. They haven't since 2014, that is why we are here.

Fundamentally, nobody is going to negotiate until the reality of strength is clear. Both sides believe the war in the east will go their way. They need to see what reality is on the ground before an agreement is possible.
