Abstract: This paper examines the official Ukrainian position on the suspension of the INF Treaty. It sheds light on current debates about Ukraine: whether it should enhance own security by starting to produce missiles that were previously forbidden by the INF. Consequently, the paper suggests three alternative scenarios. They range from keeping the status quo with the missiles currently in production up to the production of new missiles or joining European missile defense under the auspices of NATO. In general, there are two positions on Ukraine's membership in the INF. One is that according to the "Law on the succession of States in respect of treaties" adopted by Ukrainian parliament Verkhovna Rada, Kyiv is one of the successors of the Soviet Union in respect of INF along with other former republics involved in the production and deployment of short and intermediate-range missiles. This position also bases on the "Decision on the participation of the member states of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) in the Treaty between the USSR and the United States on the elimination of intermediate-range and shorter-range missiles (INF treaty)" signed in 1992.
