The head of the Ministry of Defense Oleksiy Reznikov told about this during an interview with the publication "Interfax-Ukraine".
"There are always risks. Having such a neighbor with nuclear potential, there is always a possibility that he will go crazy," Reznikov said.
At the same time, the minister does not undertake to assess the extent to which such a step on the part of the Kremlin is possible, noting that the Russian Federation has carriers ("Iskanders", "Calibers", and planes).
"I once spoke with the second president, Leonid Kuchma, who was already completing the transfer of nuclear weapons to Russia. He reminded me that even if this nuclear potential was not given away, it would have expired in 1997. It still had to be written off and disposed of. We gave it all to Russia. Therefore, the question is: what is the state of this junk in Russia?" - emphasized Reznikov.
The head of the Ministry of Defense also reminded that Ukrainian Satan missiles are still in service in Russia.
"We made them more than 40 years ago. And the question arises: who maintains them, according to which documents and how old are these engineers... Therefore, you can press a button, but it can bang right there," added Reznikov.
