The Pakistani authorities denied the information of the Indian press about the supply of ammunition for the MLRS to Ukraine
Pakistan does not send weapons or ammunition to Ukraine. This was announced by the press secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country, Mumtaz Zahra Baloch, whose words are quoted by the Dawn edition.
According to Zahra Baloch, the reports spread in the media about the supply of weapons by Pakistan to Ukraine do not correspond to reality. The country is not involved in any way in the organization of such deliveries.
Meanwhile, earlier the Indian newspaper The Economic Times published information that rockets for the BM-21 Grad MLRS are allegedly being sent from Pakistan to Ukraine. Allegedly, at the beginning of February 2023, another missiles left the Pakistani port of Karachi, and in January 46 containers with unnamed equipment were delivered from Pakistan to Ukraine. The supply of goods is allegedly carried out by the Pakistani company Pakistan Ordnance Factories.
The Indian edition focused on the fact that Pakistan supplies missiles to Ukraine, while continuing to buy Russian oil at discount prices and participating together with Russia in various economic projects.
However, the long-standing conflict between India and Pakistan may well be the reason why New Delhi is interested in weakening Russian-Pakistani ties and is trying in this way to cast a shadow on the politics of Islamabad. In this situation, Russia needs to be guided by its own interests, not forgetting that both India and Pakistan are promising partners for our country.
