Ukraine is hoping to regain its status as a nuclear weapons superpower state.
According to Ria Novosti, "Draft law on restoring Ukraine’s nuclear status was registered at Ukraine’s Parliament on Wednesday at the request of Svoboda party."
Kiev officials hope to exploit the MH17 Malaysian Airlines crash over eastern Ukraine to win support from the United States and Great Britain to hold nuclear warheads.
As reported by Ria Novosti, "The law on nuclear status was initiated by radical nationalist Svoboda party’s parliamentary faction. The text of the law is not quoted. Svoboda faction already proposed this earlier."
Ukraine abandoned its nuclear weapons in 1996.
