Sina: It is unwise for Ukraine to threaten a nuclear power with huge potential with statements about the possibility of creating nuclear weapons

43

The Chinese press is discussing the statements that are increasingly being heard from Kiev. These are statements that Ukraine could engage in the creation of its own nuclear weapons... Recently, Ukraine's Ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk made the following statement: "Either Ukraine is admitted to NATO, or it regains its nuclear status." According to Melnik, Kiev must guarantee its safety in one of these two ways.


This statement by the Ukrainian diplomat drew attention to the PRC. The Sina edition publishes an article in which the author asks the question, can Ukraine eventually become one of the countries possessing nuclear weapons?

The material indicates that this is far from the first statement from certain representatives of Ukraine regarding the creation of nuclear weapons. Thus, the Chinese media recalled that not so long ago in Ukraine there were statements about the creation of so-called "dirty atomic bombs" for "striking Moscow and other cities of Russia."

From the material of the Chinese edition Sina:

In Ukraine, they announced the possibility of creating such bombs using nuclear waste from nuclear power plants. And it is good that these statements did not develop into practical work, remaining on the pages of the media and in social networks.

The Chinese press notes that Ukraine is in a number of agreements that prevent it from having a nuclear arsenal. One such agreement is the Budapest Memorandum.

From the article:

According to this agreement, a total of 1220 nuclear warheads and several strategic bombers formerly belonging to the USSR were destroyed in Ukraine. In 2001, the launch complex of the last ICBM was destroyed in Ukraine.

At the same time, the author notes that today Ukraine "without outside help" does not have many opportunities to create its own nuclear weapons.

From the material:

After the collapse of the USSR, Ukrainian nuclear research institutes actually ceased to engage in their own developments, which led to a decrease in the activity of the nuclear industry. Technically, Ukraine has no experience in creating nuclear weapons. It was just part of the USSR, where nuclear weapons were developed. Almost all nuclear developments in the USSR were carried out at institutes and enterprises located on Russian territory (RSFSR).



It was noted that even now Ukraine is dependent primarily on Russian nuclear fuel. The Chinese author writes that until 2012, Ukraine had about 160 kg of enriched uranium at the Kiev Research Nuclear Research Institute and the Kharkov Phystech. But on March 25, 2012, the last kilograms of these stocks were exported to the Russian Federation on the basis of agreements.

In Chinese Sina:

Ukraine needs to understand that it is unreasonable for this country to threaten a nuclear power with enormous potential with statements about the possibility of creating nuclear weapons.

It is noted that even for the allies of Ukraine, which the NATO countries position themselves, the very words about the possibility of developing nuclear weapons by Kiev are dangerous, since there is a considerable likelihood of smuggling enriched uranium from Ukrainian territory.

      Nuclear weapons are not the level of great sailors. Too difficult for them.
      ... In Ukraine, they announced the possibility of creating such bombs using nuclear waste from nuclear power plants. And it's good that these statements did not develop into practical work, remaining on the pages of the media and in social networks.

      What a suicidal urge. Considering that even Ukrainian hammer mortars explode, it is not difficult to imagine what will happen when they try to create such bombs, moreover, from the waste of nuclear power plants. They want to arrange a new Chernobyl for themselves.

        Actually, I do not understand what their difficulties are, why then freeze with nuclear weapons and the like, dug the Black Sea? dug, poured mountains? poured. So what's the problem, there is experience in large-scale earthworks, So the most thing is for them to just dig a tunnel from their territory to Moscow, dig a deep underground pit under it, and bring down Moscow with all the surrounding ones closer to the Earth's mantle. Such great shchenemerliks, but they did not think of such a simple solution.

          The "Eastern Mining and Processing Plant" operates in Ukraine.
          It produces natural uranium and the production of its oxide concentrate.

          So that the groundwork is there.
          There are specialists.

          And there is a leadership in the face of Russophobes.

          There is no order there.

            How many years is the same Iranian nuclear program and how long it took, but things are still there.

            There is still no evidence that Kiev has already begun to implement its nuclear program. According to current estimates, Ukraine has a long and difficult road ahead of it. Among other things, this is due to the structure of the civilian nuclear industry in Ukraine, which complicates its reorientation to military tasks - primarily because the country does not have the full fuel cycle capabilities.

            At the same time, there are uranium deposits in the country that can lay the foundation for the production of an atomic bomb. In 2019, about 800 tons of uranium were mined in Ukraine. However, uranium processing, enrichment and transformation into fuel rods are carried out mainly in Russia. This means that Ukraine must create its own processing and enrichment industry, as, for example, Iran did, in order to obtain weapons-grade uranium, from which an atomic bomb can be created.



            The road to a plutonium-based atomic bomb would also be difficult. Ukraine has only light water reactors at its disposal, and their conversion to produce weapons-grade plutonium will be very expensive. In addition, Ukraine will need facilities for reprocessing plutonium-containing fuel rods to produce the material needed to make an atomic bomb.

            Even if Ukraine succeeds in following one of these paths and receives material for the production of an atomic bomb, it will still need to develop a reliable design of the corresponding nuclear charge. However, it is possible that this kind of technology was preserved in Ukraine in the form of a legacy received from the Soviet Union.

            "While Ukraine may still have enough technical and scientific knowledge to launch a nuclear weapons program, the country does not have test sites, which will complicate the development and production of nuclear weapons," said Mariana Budjeryn, an expert on Ukrainian nuclear policy. from Harvard, where a platform for analyzing the situation in Ukraine called Uainfocus operates. - In addition, the implementation of the nuclear program will require significant investment, which means that less funds will remain for conventional weapons. ".

      Vostochny rampart against Russia at Ukraine is clearly not being built, since it is not possible to snatch at least part of the funds allocated for its construction and equipment from the rapidly rushing hands of corrupt officials, hastily plundering the budget of Krajina.
      First, they overtook the technicians and soldiers on the line with the LDPR, threatening to start and deepen ... Then they boasted of the exercises and the crowding of troops on the border with Crimea, now they drove echelons west to the border with the PMR, where we have only 1700 peacekeepers. You have already decided on a strategy.
      OR: dig and fortify the Eastern Wall along the entire border with the Russian Federation and Belarus, digging in tanks, air defense systems, anti-tank artillery, positions under MLRS, echeloned positions deep into the depths, etc., in order to try to restrain the offensive of the Russian Armed Forces in case of aggression on the LDNR, Crimea or PMR. And then, somewhere, you advance, seize and override the circumstances against the Russian troops.
      OR: you form a BTG in all strategic directions and at the same time go with a fan attack on all Russian territories and places of deployment of troops and peacekeepers, thereby achieving the effect of surprise and everything else that you think to achieve there.
      OR: you are already determined with your future and peacefully build, develop, exist ...

      OR: Sooner or later you will be swept away by your own non-Bandera citizens!

      Remembered. From the times of Poroshenko. Narrated on the Volga in 2015, by father and son, workers, refugees from post-Maid Ukraine.

      Putin and Poroshenko are fishing. They caught a goldfish. And she tells them that they have 3 wishes. Well, Putin conceded two desires to Poroshenko - after all, the Outskirts country is poor, problematic….
      Poroshenko orders a fish:
      - So that there is not a single Russian left in the independent.
      "Click!" - executed.
      - To surround the entire square with a five-meter wall, so that not a single mosk ...
      "Click!" - executed.
      It was Putin's turn. He asks the fish:
      - Not a single Russian left there?
      - Well, like this…
      - Is the wall strong?
      - Of course, the firm guarantees ...
      - Pour concrete on figs !!!

      At first: "competencies" are completely lost (those people who could (theoretically) create nuclear weapons in the early 90s: "there are no others, but those are far away" ...
      Secondly: About the equipment - I just keep quiet! Not only centrifuges - it is simply IMPOSSIBLE to create even simpler equipment in the square!
      Thirdly: WHO will actually allow them? Yankees? So they're not dumb enough to create another one. "monkey with a grenade"!!! Russia? belay China? belay fool Euro .... union? fool fool

    "Either Ukraine is admitted to NATO, or it regains its nuclear status"
    Or the time has come to exclude Ukraine as a blackmailer from the list of countries included in the UN. But since this cannot happen with such Western support from Ukraine-anti-Russia, we finally need to include all sanctions opportunities so that the country that has declared us an enemy cannot even breathe calmly. They got their hands on Ukrainian Natsiks, headless politicians, silly diplomats and a comedian in the role of president.
