Budapest Memorandum as the international agreement which is obligatory for implementation by its guarantors

There is a number of legal proofs of that the Budapest Memorandum of 1994 is a running international agreement for its party-signers (guarantors of independence and inviolability of the boundaries of Ukraine), obligatory for implementation. Above all things, it concerns Russia main violator of the Budapest 'guarantees'. Claims of separate Russian specialists and politicians about 'the legal worthlessness' of this international and legal document are refuted with reasons.
Keywords: the Budapest Memorandum, nonproliferation regime, Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, guarantor states, international agreement.
