The Russian foreign Ministry condemned the talk of recreating the nuclear potential of Ukraine

В МИД РФ осудили разговоры о воссоздании ядерного потенциала Украины

Even the argument about nuclear weapons in Ukraine is an assault on the foundations of the modern world, said the Deputy Minister.

Deputy foreign Minister of Russia Sergei Ryabkov said that Moscow considers irresponsible arguments about the re-establishment of Ukraine’s nuclear capability after the termination of the missile Treaty. He said this speaking at the V International forum Primakov reading on Tuesday, June 11, reports TASS.

“Even with the apparently imminent termination of the INF Treaty and the existence of 2 August and, therefore, the extinction of obligations in this area, which was assumed by Ukraine becoming party to the Treaty after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and then Ukraine will remain a state party to the Treaty on the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons,” he said.

“So irresponsible arguments about the reconstruction of the nuclear weapons potential of Ukraine is evidence of at least assault on one of the fundamental bases of the contemporary world order,” – said the Deputy Minister.

We will remind, in February, the U.S. has suspended its participation in the agreement and promised to completely get out of it in six months, if Russia will not return to their obligations. Moscow has responded to Washington’s actions mirror.
