Funny how easily Zelensky scared the Kremlin ☹

Zelensky asks Foreign Ministry to convene Budapest Memorandum summit | TASS |

In his address to the Munich Security Conference on February 19, 2022, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky raised the issue of the 1994 Budapest Memorandum "on security guarantees in the framework of Ukraine's accession to the Treaty on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons".

"Since 2014"said Zelensky, "Ukraine has made three attempts to convene consultations with the Guarantor States of the Budapest Memorandum. Three attempts failed. Today, Ukraine will make the fourth attempt. And I'll make my first attempt as president."

"I initiate consultations within the framework of the Budapest Memorandum. The Minister for Foreign Affairs was instructed to summon them. If they do not happen again or if they do not lead to concrete decisions to ensure the security of our state, Ukraine will have every right to believe that the Budapest Memorandum does not work and that all decisions of the 1994 package have been called into question."
