The administration of the President of South Africa denied rumors about the alleged transportation of weapons from South Africa by a Russian ship
The administration of the President of the Republic of South Africa released a report on the investigation into the case of alleged transportation by one of the commercial ships weapons For Russia. Recall that such statements (about the transportation of weapons for Russia) were first made in December 2022-January 2023. Moreover, statements more like accusations came from the Anglo-Saxon countries and Ukraine controlled by them.
A report published in South Africa states that the Russian commercial vessel Lady R in December last year called at one of the ports of South Africa (Simonstown) to deliver cargo that was contracted back in 2018, but due to the pandemic, its delivery was postponed several times.
From the commission's report:
Official Pretoria once again stated that none of the parties to the conflict is supplying weapons, but is in favor of peace talks between Kiev and Moscow.
Recall that the Western press began to spread rumors about the alleged transfer of weapons from South Africa to Russia due to the fact that the South African Navy base is located in the port of Simonstown (among other things). In South Africa, they made it clear that this does not mean at all that the ship's entry into this port should be associated with the fact that military cargo was exported from there.
