Russian annexation of Ukraine by 2022

Question

After Russia occupied Crimea in 2014 Ukraine reacted by cutting off nearly 90% of the region's fresh water. Given the geopolitical importance of Crimea and the Black Sea Fleet this situation seems intolarable for Russia. Recently Russian troops amassed near the Ukrainian border, potentially indicating a coming conflict. Reactions by NATO and the US specifically indicate a credible threat to the Ukrainian territory.

Will Russia annex Ukrainian territory before 2022?

This question resolves positively if any formal annexations on behalf of the Russian Federation are represented within their official constitution (English source), specifically, under 'Chapter 3, Federated device' by 12:00AM January 1, 2022 Moscow Standard Time (GMT+3).
