In 1994, Ukraine dismantled its nuclear arsenal and ICBMs.

According to present-day Ukraine, was it a mistake?

What do Ukrainian political leaders and scholars/intellectuals say about this?

What do Ukraine's general population say about this?

Ukraine never actually have nuclear arsenal. It was like US nukes on German military bases. Geographically, it are in Germany, but it is the US nukes. The same way Soviet, and then Russian nukes were on the Ukrainian territory. According to wiki, it was under the Commonwealth of Independent States control.

So, the question itself is about something hypothetical, sort of "What if?".

    Well, if Ukraine didn't own them, who did own them and then let Ukraine destroy them: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_weapons_and_Ukraine

    @JustMe It wasn't Ukraine who destroyed the nukes. They gave all their nukes to Russia. Russia then destroyed them. Ukraine didn't have technical capability to do that.
