SUBJECT: UKRAINE: U.S. FEEDBACK ON SLV ENGINE COOPERATION 
WITH INDIA AND MIXER CASE 
 
REF: A. STATE 135358 
 
     B. KYIV 2245 
 
Classified By: Political Counselor Kent Logsdon for reasons 
1.4(b,c,d) 
 
1. (S) We relayed ref A points September 27, on both the 
planned cooperation with the Indian Space Research 
Organization and a possible batch mixer sale to India's Cyano 
Chemisive Systems, to MFA Arms Control and Military Technical 
Cooperation Department Counselor Oleh Belokolos.  Belokolos 
thanked us, but had no reaction. 
 
2. (C) Comment: Belokolos was likely being circumspect until 
he had a chance to relay our answers to higher-ups within MFA 
and to the National Space Agency of Ukraine (NSAU).  As he 
indicated on another issue, however (septel), the Ukrainian 
government response will likely be determined at a session of 
the high-level, interagency Commission on Arms Control and 
Military Technical Cooperation.  Since the Commission, which 
meets monthly and is chaired by a deputy prime minister, has 
already met in September and, as Belokolos noted, the timing 
of next session is very uncertain, the Ukrainian response to 
our feedback is likely to be delayed.  (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.)  Once the Ukrainians do come 
back to us, however, we will draw on the excellent and 
comprehensive background provided ref A to explain and defend 
the U.S. stance.
