Scott Gearity has a much-appreciated “mention”:http://www.exportcontrolblog.com/blog/2005/05/ukraine_has_now.html of an _Arms Control Today_ “article”:http://www.armscontrol.org/aca/midmonth/2005/april/ukraine.asp I wrote about Ukraine’s Kh-55 missile exports.
I do, however, wish to correct one small inaccuracy in his description of the piece.
bq. Ukraine has now admitted violating its commitments under the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) by exporting KH-55 air-launched cruise missiles to China and Iran…
I wrote that Ukraine admitted the _transfers_, which
bq. … are apparently contrary to Ukraineâ€™s commitments under the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR). Since 1998, Ukraine has been a member of the 34-member MTCR…
As of that article, I had not seen anything indicating that Ukraine has admitted violating the MTCR. The United States has not taken a position on the matter, as far as I know.
