    Ukraine officials: Hundreds of Soviet-era antimissiles missing
    KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Several hundred decommissioned Soviet-built surface-to-air missiles are unaccounted for in Ukraine's military arsenal, the defense minister told a newspaper.
    Defense Minister Yevhen Marchuk, in an interview published in the newspaper Den, appeared to suggest the missiles may have been dismantled without proper accounting, rather than stolen or sold.

    "We are looking for several hundred missiles," Marchuk was quoted as saying in Thursday's edition. "They have already been decommissioned, but we cannot find them".

    It's a good thing we gave them millions of dollars during the 90's to take care of this sort of thing, and then proceeded to ignore where the money actually went. Your tax payer dollars at work.

    I wouldn't. The EU would do better to collect all that it can from Russia for THEIR purposes.
