Watter pointed to 1994, only three years after the fall of the Soviet Union, when President Clinton heralded an agreement forged with Kyiv that would eliminate nuclear weapons left on Ukrainian soil by the Soviets.
“어떻게 여기까지 왔어? 빌 클린턴 forced the Ukrainians in the early 1990s to give their nukes back to Russia,” Watters recalled. “If he had just let the Ukrainians keep the nukes, Russia wouldn’t have gone in — You don’t invade a nuclear power.”
“그래서, I expect a formal apology by Bubba,” 그는 재빨리, using a noted 90s nickname for President Clinton.
클린턴, an Arkansas Democrat, called the accord struck between Russia, Ukraine and NATO a “a hopeful and historic breakthrough that enhances the security of all three participants.”
The agreement prescribed the United States, United Kingdom and Russia to provide security assurances in exchange for its arsenal. Clinton reportedly offered at least $ 175 million to fund the dismantling of the weapons at the time.
