Doing a Sudetenland on the Ukraine

It looks as though Vlad Putin is about to do a Sudetenland on the Ukraine.  

On Sept. 30, 1938, leaders of Nazi Germany, Great Britain, France and Italy signed an agreement that allowed the Nazis to annex the Sudetenland, a region of Czechoslovakia that was home to many ethnic Germans. 

Adolf Hitler had threatened to take the Sudetenland by force. 
The Czechoslovakian government resisted, but its allies Britain and France, determined to avoid war at all costs, were willing to negotiate with Hitler. On Sept. 29, Hitler met in Munich with Prime Ministers Neville Chamberlain of Britain, Edouard Daladier of France and Benito Mussolini of Italy to reach a final settlement.’   
The trio caved in to Hitler and allowed Germany to annexe that part of Czechoslovakia.   
Soon after, the Germans invaded Czechoslovakia and occupied their country before invading Poland.....WW2.

Russian speaking citizens of Ukraine are out in their thousands hoping that Vlad will return them to Mother Russia and true democracy.  I think he will (without much of the Democracy).
