'Ukraine supplied Nuclear capable cruise missiles to China, Iran'

[World News]: MOSCOW, Feb 2 : Ukraine had 'illegally' supplied nuclear capable missiles to China and Iran, a senior Ukrainian lawmaker alleged today.

"In violation of its international obligations Ukraine had sold Soviet-made Kh-55 and Kh-55S (AS-15 NATO classification) nuclear capable cruise missiles to China and Iran," Member of the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada (Parliament) Hrihory Omelchenko was quoted as saying by ITAR-TASS.

In his letter to the Ukrainian Prosecutor General, Omelchenko has alleged that 12 nuclear capable Soviet cruise missiles secretly kept in the military stores of the national Defence Ministry and were sold to Beijing and Tehran over a period of 1999-2001.

Omelchnko, who is the deputy chief of the parliamentary committee on organised crime, has asked to launch a case against the Ukrainian "Ukrspetsexport' arms exporting agency chief Valery Shmarov for 'significant damage to the country's national interests'. PTI
