Sergei Naryshkin, the chief of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), claimed that the SVR had gotten information indicating that Ukraine was engaged in developing its very own nuclear weapons. President Volodymyr Zelensky’s warnings to quit the Budapest Agreement, according to Naryshkin, were “not an empty promise.”
Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky threatened to consider removing Ukraine from the Budapest Agreement, which required the newly independent Ukraine to hand over its nuclear weapons inherited from the Soviet Union in return for security assurances.
Naryshkin pointed out that Ukraine still has the technological capability to build nuclear weapons, which is higher than Iran’s and North Korea’s.
The Russian intelligence chief also chastised EU countries for failing to respond after Zelensky threatened to retract his nation from the Budapest Agreement, which had been signed in 1994 and under which newly independent Ukraine decided to give up the nuclear weapons it inherited from the Soviet Union and pledged to remain non-nuclear.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov previously stated that weaponry that would endanger Russia just can not be installed on Ukrainian soil. On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin authorized the initiation of a special operation by Russian armed troops in Ukraine to demilitarize and “denazify” the nation.
Ukraine no longer the ‘playground’ of Deep State arms peddling and international subversion. …… …… shalom, al jenkins
Argh. Too many hoaxes for me to keep track of. Nuclear weapons is getting the most traction lately. It’s always been great for raising the anxiety level of entire populations.
Will the manipulation never end?
Of course they were working on nukes! And certainly we knew about all that! Duh!!! Why else do you think Putin had to capture the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant that George Soros funded? Do you really think Putin wanted to leave the fate of the Western half of Russia to the whims of a failed comedian being run by the Khazarian Mafia over there? Give me a break!
