/// Ukraine service:  Ukrainian acts of the chief of staff is
being sent to the newsroom bubble in the clear after the voiced
cr ///

Intro:  Ukraine is seeking to sell some of its conventional
weapons and defense technology to other countries in exchange for
food and medicines.  As Stefan Bos reports from Budapest, the
matter was discussed (Tuesday) during talks between Ukrainian and
Hungarian defense officials.

Text:  Ukraine's chief of staff, general Anatolij Lopata, says
that if Hungary wants the weapons, Ukraine wants the equivalent
of 360-thousand dollars' worth of medicines and medical
equipment.

General Lopata said Ukraine, a country of more than 50 million
people, also needs food supplies, and would be willing to
sell-off some of its weapons for food aid.

Through an interpreter, the chief of staff said that the exchange
of weapons and defense technology for humanitarian aid is the
only way to secure a better future for the next generation.

                 /// Lopata interpreter act ///

         There are  no  political barriers between our countries.
         We can maybe talk about economical barriers.  Doing this
         kind of business is  not  making us very rich, and that
         is  not  our aim.  We are doing it for the future of our
         children.

                         /// End act ///

Hungarian defense minister, Gyorgy Keleti, said he will study the
Ukranian proposal very closely.  The minister said Hungarian
ground forces desperately need modern equipment.  But he added
that an agreement with Ukraine could  not  be signed during the
chief of staff's visit here because of Hungary's lack of money to
buy the medicines required by Ukraine.  However, the minister
believes the agreement will be signed within the month, and the
first phase of the program is likely to be completed by early
next year. (Signed)

MECIAR MEETS WITH FOREIGN JOURNALISTS. On the occasion of the
incumbent Slovak parliament's final session, former Premier
Vladimir Meciar met with foreign journalists, CTK reported on 1
September. Criticizing the current government's privatization
program, which includes a second wave of coupon privatization,
Meciar said he would have to "start over again" after the
elections. He said the coupon method did not create real owners,
adding that he preferred management and employee buy-outs.
Stressing the importance of strong ties with the Czech Republic,
Meciar said Czech Premier Vaclav Klaus had "confirmed his deep
sense of democracy" by negotiating with the government
"legitimately elected" rather than the one that took power after a
parliamentary "putsch." Meciar said the current government had
done nothing to improve Slovak-Hungarian relations and stressed
the need for Hungary's recognition of the current border. Meciar
also criticized the Slovak Constitution, according to which the
president is elected by the parliament. He emphasized that the
president--who, he said, is not subject to control under the
present system--should be reduced to a figurehead or a
presidential system should be introduced whereby he would be
popularly elected. On the upcoming elections, Meciar said his
party was "stronger than in 1992" and was likely to win enough
votes to avoid having to form a coalition government.  Sharon

HUNGARIAN DRUGS FOR UKRAINIAN ARMS. The Hungarian and Ukrainian
defense ministers initialed an agreement in Budapest on 31 August
calling for Hungary to trade drugs worth 30-40 million forint
($275,000 to $370,000) for military spare parts from Ukraine. As
reported by Reuters, Hungarian Defense Minister Gyorgy Keleti
explained the barter deal was more favorable to Hungary than
paying in dollars. Keleti also said the two countries planned to
hold small joint military exercises. Ukrainian Deputy Defense
Minister Anatolii Lopata was quoted as saying that the two wanted
to strengthen their friendship "not just in the short term but for
centuries." Doug Clarke, RFE/RL, Inc.

LITHUANIA, GERMANY SIGN MILITARY COOPERATION AGREEMENT. On 1
September Lithuanian and German Defense Ministers Linas
Linkevicius and Volker Ruehe signed in Bonn a military cooperation
agreement on the exchange of information and military training,
Radio Lithuania reports. Germany has signed similar agreements
with eight other East European countries (Poland, the Czech
Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Russia, and
Ukraine) and plans to do the same with Latvia and Estonia. The
ministers stressed the importance of the withdrawal of Russian
troops from their countries. Ruehe was quoted as saying that it is
now important to cooperate with Russia on the basis of friendly
relations. The NATO Partnership for Peace initiative, he said,
should assume central importance. Two Lithuanian military officers
are now training at the Bundeswehr Leadership Academy in Hamburg,
and five more will attend next year.  Saulius Girnius, RFE/RL,
