Deputy Defense Minister Volodymyr Tereshchenko, grinning 
broadly, handed over the SCUD missile and component inventory 
long requested by the U.S. (note: see ref A from 2005.  The 
MOD was prepared to pass the list at the 2006 NPWG, but 
declassification issues took a year to resolve.  end note). 
Popovych urged the U.S. to move quickly to the next step in 
SCUD missile destruction by sending a team of experts to 
survey the storage locations during the August 1-20 
timeframe.  He said that he would need names and passport 
numbers of the team by July 15 in order to be able to process 
the access request in a timely fashion.  Popovych opined that 
the team should include appropriate legal and financial 
experts who would be able to discuss the drafting of an 
appropriate agreement to support the SCUD missile destruction 
process.

the inventory list to Washington.
