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:

Some of the rumors that equipment or weapons were loaded on board the Lady R are untrue. The commission that conducted the check did not find any confirmation of the earlier rumors.

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.

      . The main thing for foreigners is to prove that Russia does not do everything by itself, by itself, but like, also on suction from somewhere, sits / holds on.
      You don’t need to prove it, blather loudly, accuse, louder, and the choir of hangers-on will support.

        As part of the propaganda war with the West, I would advise us ourselves to throw up such horror stories more often for Western inhabitants. Let them think that caravans of weapons from all over the world are coming to us, and even French Polynesia has been noticed in this. fellow

      accusations came from the Anglo-Saxon countries and their controlled Ukraine.

      The arrogant Saxons and Banderlogs will accuse anyone of anything to hide their crimes...

      And why should South Africa justify itself to other countries and the remains of some Outskirts?!

      In the photo above, it’s really Ledy R in BMB Sayotown. I don’t observe the loading and unloading of military cargo. bullySouth Africa recognizes the delivery of military cargo to South Africa from Russia, under a 2015 contract.

      I wonder what interesting weapons South Africa has that would interest Russia? Maybe their desert armored cars? laughing
