From large-scale nuclear invasion of the country can be stopped only by a powerful weapon of deterrence, and this problem should be solved Ukraine as a priority, says Secretary of the NSDC.

Nuclear disarmament of Ukraine was a historic mistake. So says the Secretary of the national security and defense Alexander Turchinov, as he stated in an interview with Gordon.

“It can be concluded that many people do not like nuclear disarmament was a historic mistake. Given us security guarantees are not even worth the paper on which they were written,” he said.

According to the head of SBNO, only the strong Ukraine could bring himself to respect and to reckon with our national interests.

“While Ukraine will not become a NATO member, and it is not in the near future, we must understand that in the event of a large-scale aggression will be forced, as in 2014, to rely on our own strength”, – said Turchinov.

According to him, from the scale of invading a nuclear country can be stopped only by a powerful weapon of deterrence.

“In my personal opinion, this task should be to deal with our country as a priority,” he said.

Earlier it was reported that in the South of Odessa region started the state testing of Russian missile complex Alder – jet system with adjustable munitions.
