Military force or diplomacy in priority
In turn, for 20 years of participation in the NPT, Ukraine faithfully perform all the provisions of this document, and has implemented an additional obligations under the Nuclear Summit process by refraining from the use of highly enriched uranium.
Currently, Ukraine is not officially considering the restoration of nuclear weapons. However, the situation around the Russian intervention in the Crimea demonstrates the lack of effectiveness of international security and diplomatic means to ensure the territorial integrity of our country.
Therefore the West should actively contribute to the stabilization of the situation in Ukraine and to take all possible political and economic measures to stop Russian aggression. Otherwise, Ukraine will be forced to revisit the issue of restoring the nuclear cycle and production of all the necessary components for the military defense of the national interests.
