1. (S) We relayed reftel information November 30 regarding 
Ukrainian Arsenal Design Bureau's potential business with the 
Beijing Institute of Aerospace Control Devices and with 
affiliates of the China Sanjiang Space Group to MFA Arms 
Control and Military Technical Cooperation Department 
Counselor Oleh Belokolos.  Belokolos said he would pass on 
the information to the appropriate Ukrainian government 
offices for follow-up, but also noted that Arsenal would have 
needed to apply for an export license from the State Service

request to MFA for its input.  Belokolos said he did not 
recall any application from Arsenal in 2006.

reftel regarding the U.S. investigation into U.S. firms Myers 
and Thiokol's alleged sale to India's Cyano Chemisive 
Systems.  He said he would circulate this information within 
the Ukrainian government.
