Classified By: Political Counselor Kent Logsdon for reasons 1.4(b,d) 
 
1. (C) We provided ref A report October 23 to MFA Arms 
Control and Military Technical Cooperation Department 
Director Volodymyr Belashov.  At the same time, we provided 
information copies of U.S. papers and positions contained 
refs B-E (on space launch vehicles and ballistic missiles, 
U.S. proposal on MTCR outreach, Iranian front companies, 
end-use checks, and visas and intangible technologies). 
Finally, we took the opportunity to underscore U.S. 
willingness to hold a digital videoconference (DVC) to 
discuss the U.S. MTCR proposal on unmanned aerial vehicles. 
 
2. (U) Belashov thanked us for the information, noting that 
it was timely in the run-up to the November 5-9 MTCR plenary 
in Athens.  He had requested that the Foreign Ministry 
approve his participation in the Ukrainian delegation, which, 
however, would be headed by State Service for Export Control 
Director Yuriy Petrochenko.  While the Cabinet of Ministers 
must still approve the composition of the Ukrainian 
delegation, Belashov noted that it would be the largest 
Ukrainian delegation to date for an MTCR plenary session, 
with representation, in addition to MFA, drawn from the 
Presidential Secretariat, the National Security and Defense 
Council (NSC equivalent) secretariat, Ministry of Defense, 
National Space Agency of Ukraine (NSAU), state arms export 
company Ukrspetsexport, and others.  Belashov also welcomed 
our offer of a DVC, saying he would consult further with NSAU 
and other relevant Ukrainian government offices.
