Classified By: Political Counselor Kent Logsdon for reasons 1.4(b,d) 
 
1. (C) We relayed ref A points September 27 to MFA Arms 
Control and Military Technical Cooperation Department 
Counselor Oleh Belokolos.  Belokolos, who was at the Oslo 
meeting, said he would have the U.S. UAV/cruise missile 
proposal translated as soon as possible, distribute it to the 
relevant Ukrainian officials, and gather their input.  The 
issue, however, had policy implications that would require an 
inter-agency Commission on Arms Control and Military 
Technical Cooperation to review it.  Unfortunately, the 
Commission, which meets monthly and is chaired by a deputy 
prime minister, had already met in September.  Due to the 
uncertain political climate, he was not sure when the 
Commission would meet next, so the Ukrainian delegation might 
not have an official position by the next MTCR Technical 
Experts Meeting, beginning November 1 in Athens.  (Note: 
Ukraine will have parliamentary elections September 30, after 
which the political parties in parliament will negotiate to 
form a majority coalition and select the next prime minister 
and cabinet for the new government.  We heard September 28, 
however, that the Commission might be scheduled to meet 
during the week of October 1, probably still too soon for 
Belokolos to prepare our proposal for inclusion in the 
agenda.) 
 
2. (U) As we have done with previous papers provided in 
telegrams on which Embassy Kyiv has been an information 
addressee, we also provided Belokolos with the papers in refs 
C-G that were prepared for the Information Exchange to be 
held in conjunction with the November 5-9 MTCR Plenary in 
Athens.
