The Head of State expressed concern about the risks of Russian side placing nuclear weapons on the peninsula, "because according to the rules of international law, Ukraine is solely responsible for the deployment of nuclear weapons on its territory".

"In accordance with the information of Ukraine’s intelligence, Russia  plans to deploy the elements of nuclear weapons in Crimea.  Since Crimea is Ukrainian territory, we are very concerned about such possibility. We demand very coherent and effective steps of the international community to prevent drastic deterioration of the security situation in the Black Sea region by placing nuclear weapons in Crimea ", - said Poroshenko.
