“The pessimistic scenario leaves open the beginning of a war between Russia and Ukraine, and even further clashes between Russia and NATO. Such turn of events is possible, if the Ukrainian war party decides to solve the problem of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk republics by force, or if the rebels resume hostilities in an attempt to break the economic blockade.
