SUBJECT: RUSSIA SAYS NO TO FUNDING INFORMATION ACTIVITY IN GARMISCH

REF: STATE 114745

SENSITIVE BUT UNCLASSIFIED. PLEASE PROTECT ACCORDINGLY.

1. (SBU) Per reftel instructions, on August 16 we discussed the
upcoming Information Portal Activity in Garmisch, Germany under the
Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism (GICNT), with
Alexander Bulychov from the MFA's Department of Security and
Disarmament Affairs (DVBR). Bulychov told us he had just discussed
the Garmisch Activity with DVBR Deputy Director Oleg Rozhkov.
Bulychov noted that Russia would not be able to fund the attendance
of two partner nation representatives at Garmisch, noting that GICNT
did not presuppose additional budget commitments from the parties.
He also said that Russia had earlier instructed all of its
diplomatic posts in partner nations to encourage attendance at
Garmisch. Based on those demarches, it appeared that Armenia and
Ukraine were interested and would likely attend.
