MOSCOW, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. The incapability of the “new government in Kiev”, not Russia, may pose a threat to Ukraine’s nuclear facilities, the Russian delegation at the Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague said in a statement distributed by the Russian Foreign Ministry on Tuesday.
The statement came in response to remarks made by Ukraine’s representative at the summit who claimed that Russia was allegedly threatening nuclear facilities in Ukraine, who even asked for foreign assistance to protect them.
“This is nothing else than an attempt to shift the blame,” the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed.
It also expressed concern with an initiative of a group of Ukrainian deputies to withdraw from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
