Ukraine has participated in some Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW) meetings on autonomous weapons systems. Ukraine has not yet declared its position on the negotiation of a legally binding instrument on autonomous weapons systems.
At the 78th UN General Assembly First Committee in 2023, Ukraine voted in favour of resolution L.56 on autonomous weapons systems, along with 163 other states. Resolution L.56 stressed the ‘urgent need for the international community to address the challenges and concerns raised by autonomous weapons systems’, and mandated the UN Secretary-General to prepare a report, reflecting the views of member and observer states on autonomous weapons systems and ways to address the related challenges and concerns they raise from humanitarian, legal, security, technological and ethical perspectives and on the role of humans in the use of force.
In 2013, Ukraine supported the establishment of the Group of Governmental Experts on Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems.Statement by Ukraine, CCW Meeting of High Contracting Parties, 14 November 2013, https://www.reachingcriticalwill.org/images/documents/Disarmament-fora/ccw/MSP-2013/Statements/14Nov_Ukraine.pdf
