He added, "The role of NATO (in such a case) will not be as important as it was thought in the past."
He added that the second scenario is an attempt to "expel" Russia from the territories that it seized in its military operation, including Crimea.
If military actions continue, "the risks of (the West) entering a direct war with Russia will increase."
He pointed out that the third scenario is a return to what it was before February 24, adding that in this case Ukraine will be rearmed, and it will be closely associated with NATO or may be a member of the alliance in the future.
