Kravchuk believes that the nuclear potential can be recovered for $ 100 billion

The first President of Ukraine Leonid Kravchuk believes that the restoration of the nuclear potential of Ukraine requires about $100 billion. He declared it on air «channel 112».

«When the question was raised in my time, we believed that the recovery of nuclear weapons (it will cost you — ed) — $ 45 billion. I think it is 100. I don’t know where these gentlemen see the money now, if you take the purely financial. Theoretically, the state could produce a nuclear weapon. Maybe North Korea, maybe Ukraine», — noted ex-the President.

«If I had the money, were the appropriate conditions, I would have looked, this is the world. I am certain that then, as now, Europe and the United States would be strongly opposed to the increase on the world map nuclear-weapon States. I would be against it for another reason. I believe that nuclear weapons, any weapon of mass destruction is not the main factor to ensure peace. The world is without weapons. Negotiations through diplomatic channels. If, as they say, on the wall in the theater hangs a gun, it will shoot. So here,» — said Kravchuk.

Recall, Ukraine officially lost its nuclear status 2 Jun 1996. The fundamental principles of nuclear-free ( «not accept, produce or acquire nuclear weapons») was enshrined in the Declaration on state sovereignty of Ukraine adopted by the Verkhovna Rada of the Ukrainian SSR on 16 July 1990.
