Bulgarian arms dealer admits possession of ammunition for Ukraine in Czech Vrbitica

55

In military warehouses in the Czech Vbretitsa, where the explosions took place, ammunition belonging to a Bulgarian merchant was stored weapons Emilian Gebrev. The New York Times writes about this with reference to the statement of Gebrev himself.


Gebrev admitted that his company EMCO in 2014 stored ammunition intended for Ukraine in warehouses in the Czech Vbretitsa. He also said that after 2014, he entered into contracts with Ukrainian companies for the supply of military equipment to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Earlier, he denied that the weapons in Czech warehouses were intended for Kiev and the very fact of the supply of weapons to the Ukrainian army after the outbreak of the conflict in Donbass.

At the same time, Gebrev denies the fact of incorrect marking of boxes with shells for Ukraine, which were allegedly designated as being sent to Thailand, so that Russia would not interfere with supplies. However, Moscow learned about the upcoming supply of shells to Kiev, after which they demanded to stop supplying Ukraine with ammunition.

The Czech Republic bases its accusation on this fact, which stated that the explosions in warehouses in 2014 were allegedly staged by the Russian special services in order to disrupt supplies. According to Prague, the "famous" Russian spies Petrov and Boshirov, involved in the poisoning of the Skripals, visited the Zlín region of the Czech Republic in October 2014, where they blew up warehouses in Vrbetica.

Prague has no evidence of Russia's involvement in the explosion, President Milos Zeman admitted. He stated that in the materials of the special services there is no evidence of the presence of "Russian agents" in Vrbetica. In Moscow, all accusations against Prague were called absurd.

      After today's speech by M. Zeman, it is obvious that one should expect from the Czech politicians, of lower rank, awkward explanations that they were incorrectly informed by their investigating authorities.

      But Russia is neither warm nor cold from this, so the Czech Republic should be punished unambiguously, for example, by banning tourists from entering the Czech Republic and importing beer from the Czech Republic.

      We shouldn't forget about the Baltic states with Poland and Slovakia, for solidarity.

          The fact of the matter is that by accusing their citizens and the President of love for Russia, some Czech politicians put themselves in a stupid position, because either at least some of the local opponents must provide their "evidence" or explain why they even have such information is not provided.

      A lot can be squeezed out.
      Remember at least Georgia, which during the Chechen campaigns in Russia was a transit place for various thugs and a resting place for them.
      This is useful and important to know, especially when people like Georgia or Bulgaria, the Czech Republic or the Baltic states start asking Russia for something, presenting themselves as poor and fluffy sheep.

          You look too narrowly at this fact, but I think that both various authorities of the country and ordinary citizens receive their portion of knowledge on the basis of such information.
          For example, the special services receive additional and confirming information about the routes, countries and persons of the supply of weapons to the same Ukraine.
          Ordinary citizens assess the country in terms of its security and goodwill towards visitors at the moment or in the future.

    One is randomness, two is coincidence, three is regularity.
    After the occupation of Czechoslovakia, the Nazis transported Czech weapons to Palestine, for Jewish "fighters" against the British occupiers.
    After the end of the Second World War, Israel used this weapon (already from Czechoslovakia) to defend its statehood.
    Well, now for the APU.

    In an official statement to the media, the EMCO company Emelyana Gebreva states:


    "... The EMCO group of companies is one of the largest ammunition manufacturers in Europe. It has a wide range of partners with whom it maintains relationships strictly regulated by EU legislation and the relevant national regulatory regimes and authorities. Among them are partners from the Czech Republic .... Ukraine is a sovereign state with all the legal rights to organize its defense and no restrictions on the supply of military equipment. For Ukraine, supplies are supplied to governments and private companies from all over the world, including from Central and Eastern Europe. Against this background, supplies from Bulgaria were insignificant, if generally were .... Allegations that the ammunition destroyed as a result of the terrorist attack in the Czech Republic in 2014 was intended for the re-export of EMCO to Ukraine does not correspond to reality. Moreover, EMCO has never exported ammunition from the Czech Republic to Ukraine. This is documented.
    ... During the months before, during and at least one year after the explosions in the Czech Republic, EMCO did not plan or plan to move the property from these warehouses either to Bulgaria or to any other country. We remind you that the transportation of military equipment, especially explosives, is a complex process that requires lengthy preparation and significant documentary exchange with the authorities of the sending and receiving countries, as well as transit countries through which the materials must pass. Documents in the archives of EMCO completely refute versions of even intentions regarding such transportation in the period from April 2014 to December 2015 ... Assumptions about the motives and causes of the explosions should be clarified by the Czech investigating authorities. As can be seen from the public statements made so far, including by officials, there are a number of conflicting and even mutually exclusive statements. "


    EMCO also declares that the company is ready to provide full assistance to the investigation, providing all the necessary documentation, but the investigative authorities of the Czech Republic have never approached them!

      Gebrev denies any connection with the events in the Czech Republic, he is ready to provide complete documentation in confirmation. And although he is an extremely ambiguous personality, the ego company EMCO is one of the big ones in the branch. It is not excluded that the competitor wants to knock him out of the market. Business with arms does not like light ... Emelyan Gebreva has been repeatedly tried to be removed from the business.

    Jaroslav Hashek wrote a book: Good Soldier Schweik ". Czechs should not kill their giants and should read books, if they are not caught up in 4 Reich (EU) to forget to read.
    There, Hashek explains well the attitude of servants and hozains in metaphors. All Slovenes, trapped from the head, were turned into Catholics and Protestants, and then into slaves and servants, and some whose genetic code was strong, simply by GENOCIDE, they were destroyed like Luzhichka Serbe from Saxony to the east!
    The Czechs served well as the Habsburgs and then the Germans and the Evil Britons, now they serve 4 Reich well.
    "ELITA" of traitors, servants and a scoundrel at the Chpkhs was made a long time ago for the Gasburgs and is doing its job. The people there are fur and good, they turned into sheep long ago. Such a people will not fight, this is a consequence of the termination of the people in sheep, so what would the "elita" in the Czech Republic consider how many of them will be taken away by pulling out 1.000 - 3.000 - 5.000 ??? The rest will look like a sheep of what is happening.
    So for the "Czech elita" you have to think if they will have time to escape if something happens ??? And it's a pity for the sheep that they are being substituted under the knife by such scoundrels, the servant of OCCUPANTS!

    Prague has no evidence of Russia's involvement in the explosion, President Milos Zeman acknowledged this. He stated that in the materials of the special services there is no evidence of the presence of "Russian agents" in Vrbetica.
