Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Has he? In the end what did he gain? Looking back, the EU/US tried to pull the Ukraine into its sphere of interest(association agreement) and Putin tried to fix it in his with the custom union and the like. And when he finally outbid the West for Yanukovich everything blew up and there is an actively hostile government in Kiev. I wouldn't count that as a win. More a draw with  collateral damage.
