I thought Ukraine could actually be split to three parts: pro-Russian Eastern Ukraine and Crimean peninsula, neutral Central Ukraine (where Kiev is located) and nationalistic, anti-Russian Western Ukraine (mainly Galicia).

This can be true. Donbass is developed and industrialized, at least by Ukrainian standards.

True, but they have better demographics than pro-Russian areas in Ukraine.

If Ukraine joins EU it will be just another Romania or Bulgaria. It will lose it's industrial base and become a source of raw materials and cheap labor for colonial powers.

Right now there is an attempt to seize power by force and revolution in Kiev. If they succeed Ukraine will be even more doomed than it is now.
