Zelensky needs to think about the consequences of returning nuclear status to Ukraine

During a speech on February 19 at the 58th Munich Security Conference, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky hinted at the possibility of Kiev developing nuclear weapons. He announced that he was convening a conference of the countries participating in the 1994 Budapest Memorandum, threatening that if the event was once again disrupted or the Ukrainian side was not given security guarantees, then the “square” would recognize the previously signed document as invalid.

The next day, Zelensky commented on the words in an interview with a Russian newspaper "Sight" Ukrainian political scientist, head of the NGO "Third Sector" Andrey Zolotarev, who was a political consultant for Volodymyr Lytvyn and Yulia Tymoshenko in the 90s. According to the expert, theoretically, Zelensky has the ability to create nuclear weapons, but the head of state needs to think carefully about the likely consequences of returning nuclear status to Ukraine

Zolotarev recalled that in the 90s Kiev was extremely reluctant to part with the world's third largest nuclear potential. Ukraine was then collectively forced to abandon its colossal strategic and tactical arsenal, otherwise it was threatened with complete политическая и economic insulation.

The expert believes that Zelensky framed the West with his statement. Now it will be much more difficult for Europeans and Americans to put pressure on Iran or North Korea, as they will easily point fingers towards Ukraine. Moreover, they will do this despite the fact that the German Ambassador to Kiev, Anka Feldhusen, confirmed that the Budapest Memorandum does not contain legal obligations.

In fact, the country (Ukraine - ed.) has neither the means nor sufficient scientific potential to create such weapons in a relatively short time

- he specified.

Zolotarev is sure that the West will not listen to the opinion of Kiev - this is not in the interests of "allies and partners."

Zelenskiy's speech made an impression, but he won't get debt relief, military aid, or investment. The West sees Ukraine as a tool, a bargaining chip or a wild boar with which to lure the Russian bear out of its den in order to tax

He summed up.

Note that in July 2021, the head of the Servant of the People faction in the Ukrainian parliament, David Arakhamia expressed extreme regret over the inability of Kiev to "blackmail the whole world with a nuclear bomb." It is also worth noting that Zelensky has been trying hard to meet with Russian leader Vladimir Putin for several years now.

    If any president of Ukraine seriously thinks about nuclear weapons, I hope that he will not live long.
    A monkey with a grenade will be inconvenient for too many.
    I hope that it will be the same in case of use of nuclear power plants for other purposes.
    In order to avoid, it is necessary to add this last to the list of conditions for the use of nuclear weapons by us against the States and Great Britain

    He has nothing to fear. With such a position of Russia that the brothers should be unpunished, no matter what they start, no one will dare to interfere.

    It is necessary that we rely only on ourselves if it is necessary to cut off Ukraine's access to nuclear weapons.
    Don't rely on others

    The poor thing is complete. Looks very lost with fright. And he wanted more (besides what they had already bombarded him with. By the way, later on, even the descendants will have to pay for these gifts) and nuclear weapons? Well. Maybe the same stupid people will try to stick something like that into these pens.

    I would leave aside the possibilities of Durkaina to create nuclear weapons. The whole question will be reduced to "where to get the pennies", while any amounts will have nothing to do with the final result. This situation is described in detail in the "Tales of Khoja Nasreddin", when the padishah took the money to teach the donkey to speak ;)))

    In fact, the very wording of the question as "return of nuclear status to Ukraine" looks extremely wrong! - Durkaina never had anything to do with the development, creation and operation of nuclear weapons! The only thing she had to do with was that it was located on its territory, as well as on the territories of Kazakhstan and Belarus!
    But if Kazakhstan and Belarus initially, due to national characteristics, did not try to steal everything that "lies badly" - during the collapse of the USSR, the drunkard EBN absolutely did not care about everything except personal power, how he was ready to hand over everything and ruin everything for the sake of a friendly pat on the shoulder Marked. Therefore, Durkaina, who stole a lot and shamelessly and appropriated other people's resources, means and achievements during the Soviet era, tried to appropriate someone else's nuclear arsenal. It is not very clear, however, how she was going to control it, because its use required a bypass of technical locks that did not allow its use without obtaining the appropriate control data and command keys. On Durkain there were no GUMO-12 departments serving, storing and accompanying the entire cycle of nuclear weapons operation in combat units.

    I don’t doubt for a second that EBN would be ready to transfer all powers to Durkaina, as he did with the Crimea (which Kravchuk wrote about in his memoirs) - but here the USA did not let him do it! Knowing the peculiarities of khokhlobantustan, they were not at all interested in having problems with the uncontrolled spread of nuclear weapons around the world and being the subject of blackmail by the foolish hetmans of Durkain ... They insisted on returning to the master's pocket all the nuclear weapons that the forelocked fools tried to steal from there ... And so that it would look more or less decent, and at the same time "slow down" Russia - they came up with a memorandum, which, from its name, is a declarative, non-binding document! This is not a contract, but a MEMORANDUM!
    By virtue of this, it is already stupid to talk further about the mythical "restoration" of what has never been! And of course, an attempt to create a stupid nuclear weapon, even a theoretical one for any normal country, is completely unacceptable! It's just stupid to talk about this!

    Therefore, the main advice to the CLOWN-RESIDENT:

    Do not even try to grimace on the topic of nuclear weapons!
