1. On November 26, we provided the background information
contained ref A on U.S.-Russia discussion on the Conventional
Forces in Europe (CFE) treaty and missile defense (MD) to MFA
Arms Control Counselor Rustam Rustamov and Attache Katerina
Bila. (We had originally scheduled a meeting with Arms
Control Director Volodymyr Belashov, our primary interlocutor
on the topics, but he was unavailable due to a last-minute
requirement to attend a meeting with the Foreign Minister.)
Rustamov, who sat in on an earlier meeting (ref B), thanked
us, noting that Ukrainian officials found our background
information to be invaluable.
