Could anybody suggest a plausible timeline where this is the result? Only way I can see this happen is total fragmentation of the Russian Federation, which does not seem reasonable within 2 years.
This is barely realizable in normal war conditions imo. Usual dead-wounded ratio is 1:3 or 1:2 at most. Ukraine army has 300k soldiers according to Wikipedia, which would suggest the entirety of the Ukraine army would have to be listed as casualty. Total army collapse often occurs at 20% casualty rate, so even the entirety of the 900k reserve army would be see frontline combat this year 100k deaths would be unlikely.
