As far as I know, the Ukraine has abolished all nuklear weapons which they had from the time of the Soviet union. Anyway, they wouldn't help them in this intrastate conflict. The worst case scenario is a civil war and a split of the nation between a pro-EU western part and a pro-Russian eastern part. But nuklear weapons are of no use in a civil war.

So far, the demonstrants have been very courageous, but also very level-headed and peaceful. Most Ukrainians do not want th old corrupt regime and a new corrupt president who is a friend of Putin, not of the Ukrainian people.
