Ukraine is concerned over the fact that Russia plans to deploy the elements of nuclear weapons in the territory of the occupied Crimea and demands that the international community give clear and coherent response in order to prevent this.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said this in Washington on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Crimea is Ukrainian territory, and we are very concerned over the plans of the Russian Federation to deploy [nuclear weapons], as stated by our intelligence. We demand very coherent and effective steps of the international community to avoid drastic deterioration of the security situation in the Black Sea region," Poroshenko said at the final press conference for the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington.
