E.O. 12958: DECL: 03/28/2016 
TAGS: MARR MOPS PREL PARM
SUBJECT: UKRAINE: POTENTIAL JOINT MANPADS EVENT: GOU 
INFORMED 

Classified By: Political Counselor Aubrey A. Carlson for reasons 1.4(b, 
d) 

1. (S) PolOff and Army Attache provided ref A information on 
a potential joint MANPADS event March 28 to Oleksiy Melnyk, 
First Assistant to Defense Minister Hrytsenko.  Melnyk noted 
the weeks of May 1 and May 8 could be problematic due to the 
number of holidays.  (Note:  May 1 and 2 are official 
holidays for International Labor Day, and May 9 is Victory 
Day.  Due to the holidays' close proximity, many Ukrainians 
are on vacation between May 1 and May 9.)  We stressed that, 
since the meeting should not last more than two days, it 
could take place in the latter half of the week of May 8, 
i.e., in the timeframe of May 10-12.  Melnyk said he would 
inform DefMin Hrytsenko the evening of March 28, after his 
return to Kiev, and hoped to have a reply to us within a week.
