KYIV (QHA) -

Draft law on restoring Ukraine’s nuclear status was registered at Ukraine’s Parliament on Wednesday at the request of Svoboda party.

Ukraine, which had the world’s third-largest nuclear arsenal voluntarily cancelled its nuclear status and destroyed or sent to Russia its nuclear weapons following the collapse of the USSR in 1990.

The pressure to get a nuclear bomb back has been mounting since the start of the Russian aggression against Ukraine.

As Ukraine was to give up its nuclear missiles, it was guaranteed sovereignty and territorial integrity by USA, Russia, France and Germany.

The Svoboda nationals say that as the big powers have turned their backs on their commitments, Ukraine has to take care of its security itself.
