According to Samopomich MP, Olena Sotnyk, for the first time in the last two years the US started talking about the Budapest memorandum – the document under the terms of which Ukraine agreed to nuclear disarmament in exchange for guarantees of its safety.
“I understand why this subject is renewed now. One of the focal points of Trump’s world policy is nuclear disarmament. What kind of call for nuclear disarmament can we be talking about when the world sees the situation in Ukraine? This strategy will fail completely, unless it is shown that the guarantees Ukraine had received are fully implemented,” explains Olena Sotnyk.
She believes such rhetoric is a positive story for Ukraine, so we need to get back to the issue of the Budapest commitments.
“Some diplomats say that the Budapest Memorandum, and return to it is a lost cause. However, this is not true, and I felt this in the United States,” concluded the MP.
