1. (C) We delivered ref A response July 13 to MFA Arms 
Control and Military Technical Cooperation Department 
Director Volodymyr Belashov and Counselor Oleksandr 
Bondarenko.  Belashov directed Bondarenko to pass the 
information immediately to Deputy Minister of Defense 
Tereshchenko.  Belashov also suggested that, when ready, the 
U.S. side should propose two alternative visit dates for the 
Ukrainians to consider.  (Note:  MOD would still require 2-3 
weeks lead time in order to obtain access approval for the 
U.S. team of experts.) 
 
2. (S) Belashov commented that, a few days previously, he had 
seen MOD action officer Volodymyr Popovych, who had passed 
the Scud inventory during the non-proliferation working group 
meeting.  Belashov expressed bafflement why Popovych had even 
proposed an August timeframe for the U.S. visit, since 
Popovych mentioned that he would be on leave for the month of 
August.
