Abstract: When the UN First Committee voted in October to initiate conferences at which a treaty banning nuclear weapons would be negotiated, a country such as Ukraine might have been expected to vote in favor. At the end of the Cold War, after all, Ukraine had inherited the world’s third-largest arsenal of nuclear weapons from the Soviet Union – but Kiev gave them up. Ukraine also joined the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) as a nonnuclear weapon state, and it remains a treaty member in good standing. Moreover, Ukraine is threatened to its east by one of the world’s two largest nuclear powers – and does not benefit from the nuclear deterrence capacity of the other. So Ukraine voted in favor of banning the Bomb – right?
