Stratfor predicts Russia's reaction to US lethal weapons for Ukraine

If the United States gives lethal defensive weapons to Ukraine, it will provoke Moscow to start a massive escalation in Donbas and even capture of new territories, a private intelligence/analytical Stratfor company report says, Apostrof writes Sept.1.

Russia may react by stepping up its aggression in Eastern Ukraine and enhancing its destructive role in North Korea and Syria, the report says. 

Ukraine’s Gen. Petro Harashchuk, Kyiv’s ex-representative in NATO, says the US, as a signatory to the Budapest Memorandum,  should have given lethal weapons to Ukraine long ago.

The memorandum signed by the US, UK, Russia and France guaranteed territorial integrity to Ukraine in exchange for giving up its nuclear weapons.
