The unfortunate reality is that peace is kept through deterrence because costs of war is too high for any side to take. If the costs aren't high enough for all sides, then war will happen because one side might calculate that the cost is worth paying to go to war. This is why you have to raise the costs so high for all sides, that nobody will go to war because then the price wouldn't be worth paying for any side. Ukraine having nuclear weapons would most certainly make the costs of invading Ukraine very high for the Russians. The Ukrainians certainly wouldn't have much to lose using them on Russian invading forces because they would get destroyed even if they didn't use them.

A 2nd Chechenya is the nightmare of Russian Generals. This means all civilians have to be armed (mass mobolisation).

Ukraine, I am sure is not the only small country that wants nuclear weapons.
