To whom the smugglers of Ukraine intended to sell components for Soviet military equipment: assumptions


The informational “waves” that rose after the scandalous stories with the delivery to one of the enterprises of Ukroboronprom, defective corps for BTR-4E combat vehicles, as the military department "nezalezhnoy" shocked new troubles.


The counterintelligence unit of the Security Service of Ukraine in the Lviv region uncovered an organized criminal group whose members were engaged in the theft of components and spare parts for armored vehicles. Moreover, they plundered both the property of military units, and the fact that it "lay bad" at the enterprises of the military-industrial complex. The backbone of the criminal group was the military personnel of the armed forces of Ukraine.

The criminals caught in uniform were a variety of things of a very specific purpose: military night vision devices, radio stations, transmissions, balancers, skating rinks, track parts, electric motors of auxiliary systems and other components for armored vehicles. The stolen material assets that have an unambiguous military purpose, the attackers did not intend to hand over for scrap. According to the SBU operatives, they were going to transport all the stolen goods across the border for sale in “one of the neighboring countries.” Here very interesting questions arise: if you consider that the robbers in Western Ukraine were operating, it is unlikely that they planned to transfer such a dubious nature cargo across the country to the East. And who would need old, obviously Soviet-made units and assemblies in Russia or, say, Belarus?

However, to assume that they could interest serious buyers in Poland or Hungary is also somehow quite problematic. Well, why, tell me, are there components for Soviet combat vehicles? But the thoughts that in this way someone decided to earn some money by transporting the mining in Lviv region to very distant lands, where various armed groups, including terrorist ones, use the weapons from the USSR all the time, look much more sensible . Moreover, equipment that is mercilessly used somewhere in Africa or the Middle East, because of old age, is very often in urgent need of constant repair. The fact that weapon from Ukraine has been repeatedly found around the world in the most unexpected places. Most often - in various "hot spots" and centers of local military conflicts.

It is still unknown to whom and through which intermediaries the military from the “non-ground” were going to "render military-technical assistance". Employees of the special services there estimate the amount of the kidnapped as “significant”, and the number of searches carried out in this case has already exceeded ten.

An interesting detail - someone did not spare the time to bring down and destroy all serial numbers on the stolen parts and components. This, too, is suggestive. Most likely, the point here is about an international channel for the smuggling of military goods from Eastern Europe. It is hard to imagine where this investigation can ultimately lead, if it is conducted properly. In any case, the Ukrainian army was once again involved in a criminal scandal with very unpleasant implications.

      The fact itself speaks for the fact that the military property of Ukraine is not amenable to accounting and is poorly guarded from theft. negative By the way, one can recall quite frequent fires in Ukrainian military depots, which, most likely, were organized in order to hide from the thefts checking the size. repeat

      Somehow everything looks very suspicious. The SBU, instead of forcing the thieves to share the unjustly acquired nishtyaks, and calmly steal further, arrest them. Maybe the price did not agree?

    Zelensky skin selling.

    The agreement was, of course, not only between Germany and the USSR, but between Germany and Poland on the division of Czechoslovakia in 1938. And then the Germans simply threw the Poles, although the Poles hoped in alliance with Germany to wage war on the territory of the USSR.

    But the USSR, after ignoring its proposals for the creation of collective security forces in Europe, was preparing for war and tried to delay its beginning and concluded the treaty with Germany last after Britain, France and Poland itself. In fact, the non-aggression treaty with Germany and the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact are just formalities thanks to which the USSR pushed the start of the war to prepare the country for defense.

    And who would need old, obviously Soviet-made units and assemblies in Russia or, say, Belarus?

    And why Belarus expelled? If they sold cheaper than official suppliers? There is no Soviet equipment in service?
    they were going to transport all the stolen goods across the border for sale in "one of the neighboring countries."

    like we are not talking about distant countries
    yet again
    suggesting that they could interest serious buyers in Poland or Hungary is also somehow quite problematic. Well, why, tell me, are there components for Soviet combat vehicles?

    And why do not Poland need them? If the Poles are armed with BMP-1 and T-72, Gvozdik, Dana, Grad and other Soviet equipment? Is buying parts in Russia clearly problematic?
    Similarly, the Hungarians-BTR-80 and other equipment?
    Even if they write off, part still remains and it needs to be maintained in a state. And stolen is always cheaper ....

    mined in the Lviv region to very distant lands, where various armed groups, including terrorist ones, use the armaments originally from the USSR all the time and look much more sensible.

    But the idea that it was easier to sell the stolen Ukrainian military-industrial complex somewhere in Kharkiv or Zhmerinka, has not come to anyone yet? lol

    For some, the war (civil) is tears, sorrow, the death of children .... for some it is an occasion to improve their financial situation. In troubled waters, large fish are caught. For the government, the Independent War is an occasion to beg for military assistance, and then plunder it. For the rear, it’s necessary to sell weapons from warehouses, to smuggle and requisitions on the contact line, for those close to the president of the current “Ukraine”, to plunder the military budget, funds for the “restoration” of houses and infrastructure .... yes, you can continue indefinitely ...

      I completely agree with your statement. BUT almost immediately after the announcement of “non-stop”, a new profession “smuggler” appeared. And specifically on the memory. In the sense, they didn’t talk about it openly before, but now they present themselves like that. And even the war was not needed.

    “To whom and through which intermediaries the soldiers from the“ non-fallow ”were going to“ provide military-technical assistance ”this time is still unknown.” a stupid question, but where is the constant war going on in recent years? Where terrorists "miraculously" restore captured and damaged equipment of government troops.

    A wonderful roof for semi-legal arms supplies. It is shipped by cars from warehouses, and then "the group that was engaged in theft" is caught. It seems that the state is not at work, and the equipment is sold. And all the flour in the warehouse was devoured by the weevil.

    Smuggling stolen military property to neighboring Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary — to equip Soviet-style armored vehicles sold by them (with a huge “friendly mark-up”!) To the Ukrainian colony “Ukraine”, which is in dire need of it to continue the bloody genocide in the Donbass!
