Is Ukraine supplying weapons to Syrian militants?

49
The Russian Foreign Ministry requested explanations from the Ukrainian and German sides about the final recipient of the Ukrainian rifle weapons, Said "RT in Russian".


“In the media there was information about the supply in Germany of semi-automatic small arms of Ukrainian production. It is indicated that it is unlikely to be used in the army of Germany. The Syrian "rebels" are called as a possible destination of this weapon, says the comment of the Information and Press Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry on the website of the Foreign Ministry.

Earlier, German media reported that the Ukrainian state concern "Ukroboronprom" carried out the supply of automatic small arms to Germany, approved by the German "responsible state agencies."

According to the experts of the American non-governmental research organization of the Jamestown Foundation, it is possible that the ultimate recipient of weapons is Syrian militants. American analysts say that in the period from 2011 to 2012, Germany received more than 50 thousands of small arms, the fate of which remains unknown.

In this regard, the Russian Foreign Ministry is awaiting “clarifications from Ukraine and Germany” about the final recipient of such arms transfers.

        An example of a style from Kalomoyshi. I remember the type of good. On April 28, he writes to the Lvov prosecutor.

        Hello Vladimir Dmitrievich!
            You, I think, have heard that we are toughly cleaning the 25th brigade here. From there we got the Information, the officers decided to play a military coup. People came from Mamchur to Nikolaev, talked with the staff, incited him to the putsch. Allegedly, Tenyukh is in charge of everything. I also connected my channels. The information seems to be confirmed. There, they say, are Butsa, Pavlov, Gvozd, a number of generals and officers, several military attachés - Petrenko to NATO and others. Apparently, under "Freedom" and Tyagnibok, everything is being started. In Kiev, I spoke with some people. Someone does not believe, someone is afraid of the details. I did not contact the SBU and the GP. There may be rats. The President and the Prime Minister are aware, but do not know what to do.
            I have a request for you. Look for something along Tenyukh in Stryi and Buka in Sambir. Maybe you will find something interesting. But I beg you, do everything carefully and very quickly. It's best to personally organize. Time is short. Together with the local "Svoboda" defeat, you will avenge yourself. You know me. I remember well.
            Waiting for the good news.
            Hug Igor K.

        Selling is still half the trouble. It is known for certain that they were employed by good-looking missilemen from the air defense brigade of Sumy and from others, I don’t remember where. This is very indicative of the local population and the fraternal feelings of the Ukrainian "army" towards us.

          An effective launch (struck by the Russian TU-22M3) was made by a comrade from the air defense brigade of the city of Stry, Lviv region. For which he received a separate house, this was shown on one of the TV programs of the Russian Federation. The main thing is what kind of policy the country's leadership pursues in this case of Ukraine. And at the helm of Ukraine was Yushchenko, the same American orange Maidan guy as Saakashvili.

      Meanwhile, in Latakia, one of the leaders of the invading gangs was destroyed.

      On Monday, April 28, units of the Syrian army and militia took control of several heights north of strategic height No. 45 in the immediate vicinity of the city of Qasab and its suburb An-Nabain. The servicemen knocked out militants from the heights of 742, 959 and 1017, and also struck the northern heights of the An-Nisr region.

      Over the past two days, government forces have taken the southern suburbs of Kasab in a half ring. By April 28, the military completely liberated the village of As-Samra (southwest of Kasaba) and the main heights rising above the border city.

      Already in the second half of the day, from the occupied heights, government forces began shelling enemy positions in the vicinity and directly in Kasaba itself. "Opposition" and Islamist sources describe the density of fire as "the most powerful" since the beginning of hostilities in the area.

      In the battles for Kasab on April 28, 2014, one of the famous Chechen terrorists Faris al-Shishani. Another Chechen field commander, Abu Musa al-Shishani, tried to organize a mortar attack on the heights occupied by the army, but did not achieve a result.

      It’s not so simple there for a long time. For example, the militants of Umar the Red (ISIS) practically do not fight with Assad, but in every way they wet Nusra and IF. Accordingly, their army is trying not to hurt. In terms of the balance of power, everything is confused

    In general, when selling weapons between states, an end-user certificate is compiled and presented, which states that weapons are purchased for their own needs and cannot be transferred to a third party. But, of course, by mutual agreement this can always be circumvented.

    I would not strongly reproach Ukraine for the supply of weapons, especially since, as follows from the text of the article, the supply to the militants was carried out through Germany. A lot of different weapons were delivered to Syria to the Basmachi, including production of the former Yugoslavia (supply presumably through Croatia); Chinese (MANPADS FN-6, ATGM HJ-8, large-caliber sniper rifles M99), despite the fact that China is an ally of the legitimate Syrian government (the supply is supposedly via Sudan), although the militants complained that most of the MANPADS FN-6 they received out of service the condition and that two MANPADS even exploded in the hands of shooters, killing two and injuring four others; of the recent acquisitions, it should be noted that the delivery to the militants of the American TOW-2A ATGMs (BGM-71E) with a tandem warhead, optimized for the destruction of armored vehicles with dynamic protection (hello Israel!).

    Trophy Yugoslavian weapons seized by government forces: the majority of the party is made up of rare outside the Balkans Yugoslavian 82-mm recoilless gun M60 and 90-mm M79 "Osa" grenade launchers with shots. (besides them, the video also shows several RPG-22 and Milkor MGL-1). RPG-22 and Milkor MGL-1 are probably also of Balkan origin (RPG-22s are produced in Bulgaria, and a copy of MGL-1 is produced by Croats).

    I noted my surprise at the participation of Germany in some of the conferences. And by the way, K. Marx, when he wrote in "Capital" that there is no such crime that would not be committed by an individual entrepreneur, somewhere he collected information for such a conclusion. Not in Ukraine. As far as I remember, there were mainly data on the UK, but I think I was also familiar with German reality firsthand.
