KYIV, (BM) – Taras Bilan, a deputy of the Ternopol City Council from the party of Petro Poroshenko, published an appeal to Vladimir Zelensky on his Facebook, calling for the creation of “atomic charges and dirty bombs” in the country to “confront” Russia and Hungary, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
The reason for the appeal was reports spread in the Ukrainian media about the creation of a “Hungarian” region in Transcarpathia. According to Bilan, this will lead to armed conflict and the loss of territory by Ukraine.
The deputy called on the Ukrainian state-owned enterprise Energoatom to urgently create “100-150 atomic charges and so-called dirty bombs” to deter the “external aggressor.” He proposed such charges to be installed on Neptune anti-ship missiles and aimed at the territory of Hungary and Russia. In addition, Bilan called for the creation of “50-100 sabotage and reconnaissance groups” from among “volunteers and volunteers” and to hand over the created “dirty bombs” to them with the order to install them near military facilities in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Budapest.
The First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs, Vladimir Dzhabarov, commenting on Bilan’s appeal to RT, noted that after the collapse of the USSR, Russia and the United States acted correctly, insisting on the export of nuclear weapons from Ukraine.
“Because we now see what politicians are coming to power there,” Jabarov said.
According to the senator, with the help of such a proposal, Bilan simply wanted to attract attention. “But in such a stupid way that it is serious to consider this politician, it seems to me that it’s not even worth it,” the parliamentarian concluded.
This is not the first time that Ukrainian experts, military and politicians have made such statements. So, military expert Valentin Badrak said that Ukraine could create a missile capable of “reaching Moscow”, and Mikhail Samus, deputy director of the Center for Army Research, Conversion and Disarmament, called for work on creating weapons that could “strike deep into Russian territory.”
After the collapse of the USSR, Kiev inherited a significant nuclear arsenal. In 1994, Ukraine, Russia, the United States and Britain signed the Budapest Memorandum, which served as the international agreement on security guarantees in connection with Ukraine’s accession to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.
In accordance with the agreement, the nuclear arsenal on the territory of Ukraine was liquidated, and the nuclear powers pledged to guarantee Kiev security.
