In the case of aggravation of the situation in Donbas due to the aggressive actions of the Russian Federation, NATO may consider granting Ukraine a lethal weapon. This in an interview with "Apostrophe" said the ex-general secretary of the Alliance, and an adviser to Ukrainian President, Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
According to him, NATO has no obligations to Ukraine, but could assist in case of continuation of Russian aggression.
"Ukraine is not a member of NATO and, therefore, Alliance has no obligations to Ukraine's security. However, if Russia does not comply with the Minsk agreement, if it continues to destabilize eastern Ukraine, I think it's time for the West and for NATO to provide Ukraine with lethal defensive weapon. And then the Ukrainian military will be better able protect themselves from Russian aggression ", - he said.
