The Russian Federation is deploying elements of its nuclear potential in Crimea, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on April 26, during the ceremony marking the 30th anniversary of the Chornobyl disaster.

"I spoke at the nuclear security summit in Washington early April, and I will repeat today, that the Kremlin is deploying the elements of its nuclear potential in the Russian-occupied territory of Crimea," Poroshenko said.

"We and our partners have to decide how to enhance security guarantees from the nuclear powers to those countries, which do not have weapons of mass destruction," the President said.
