“Does any person feel that if Ukraine have been the 3rd-largest holder of nuclear weapons that Russia would be invading them right now?” Fitzpatrick claimed. “Of study course not. They gave them up primarily based on our phrase, based mostly on the dedication that the United States, the United kingdom gave to Ukraine and to Kazakhstan as properly. 

“And we’re not upholding our end of the agreement,” Fitzpatrick continued. “So what does that suggest for foreseeable future nuclear anti-proliferation agreements? They are proceeding down the incorrect route on all these fronts.”
