Uganda tacitly shipped Mi-24 purchased in Russia to South Sudan


“The purchase of weapons was made by the Ugandan government as part of a loan of 170 million dollars received from a certain Russian bank. In February 2015, the Ugandan Finance Ministry received approval from the parliamentary committee on the economy and finance of the country in a Russian bank 170 million dollars (484,5 billion Ugandan shillings) for the purchase of secret military equipment from Rosoboronexport, ”the article quotes blog bmpd.

Four Mi-24 helicopters (modifications of the Mi-24В and Mi-24К), which were among the purchased equipment, were spotted in South Sudan in August 2015 with NAO (People’s Liberation Army of Sudan) markings on them.

"Earlier in the South Sudan helicopters MI-24 series was not", - says the publication.

According to the newspaper, “The Ministry of Defense of South Sudan, in March-April, 2015 transferred 40 million euros in two tranches through the Kampala branch of the Kenyan Commercial Bank of Africa (CBA), which is controlled by the current president of Kenya, Uruho Keniata. ".

Formal prohibition of supplies weapons in Sudan, but “under pressure from the UN, all parties to the South Sudanese conflict pledged to refrain from acquiring weapons”, the newspaper writes, noting that “in recent years, the Organization has been actively pressing neighboring countries of South Sudan to reduce the amount of weapons entering the country ".

          And sold to whom? Sudan! which consists of a coalition of Saudi bombers of Yemen. Well, do you think with your head there? maybe the Saudis and Qatar can start selling what the Igilians can use a needle, cornets, for example, grandmothers completely ate brains.

          P.S. I saw a special report when the United States even bought used spare parts for weapons which were even discontinued throughout Russia and the surrounding regions, thereby they sold all this to various militants, first they would repair old equipment, and secondly, it’s easiest to blame Russia, in case which, as was the case after the downed Malaysian Boeing. It was not important for the world to know that the beech was taken out of production in Russia, the main thing was that it was a Soviet rocket, so the Russians shot down, they imposed sanctions, what they wanted to achieve, but there, at least the grass did not grow.

            Rosoboronexport does not think about security and the "Face" of Russia. The main thing for them is to get the money and cut it. How many equipment went to Azerbaijan, and now Aliyev is looking into Erdogan's mouth. Selling weapons while their armed forces have contracts that have not yet been closed is a crime !!! Especially during a threatened period.

            It so happened that this whole region is controlled by the Saudis in one way or another, if our weapons leave the market (a holy place is never empty) it will be filled with other samples of competitors. It is not the symptoms but the cause of the disease in the region (CA) that must be "treated" - unfortunately not we have real sticks for the Saudi wheels. And so if it's a trifle - you can throw BC to the Houthis through Iran. The Salekhites at least do not cause disgust, unlike the rest of the Islamic "rebels".

        That's right ... otherwise the other ears would not stick out there.

      And keep in mind that maintenance, which is usually sold with equipment, does not shine for a new customer from the manufacturer!
      Similarly to Bulgarian planes repaired in Poland. Whoever repaired, he gives guarantees. All questions go there.

    investigates Uganda's secret supply to South Sudan

    Typically, contracts for the sale of weapons provide for clauses that exclude the sale of these weapons to third countries. Something else is interesting here
    a loan in a "Russian bank" 170 million dollars

    There is still a need to figure out who eventually wanted to sell weapons through an agreement on a loan at a Russian bank. We see illegal arms trade through intermediaries.

    It turns out interestingly that Russian companies have been going bankrupt for one year on "loans" in "Russian banks" where they give loans in foreign currency only at 12% per annum, or in rubles at 27%. And some Uganda freely received a loan of hundreds of millions of dollars, and as I understand it, far from 12%! I’m wondering how this Uganda is going to give this loan and when? or, as usual, this loan will be "forgiven" by our "rich" government and compensated for the losses at the expense of its people, by introducing new levies in the form of another reincarnation of "Plato", veiled payments "at the request of" workers or for the reason "that such are there payments in Europe "and so on?

      I do not think that commercial banks are such fools to give a knowingly bad loan! perhaps most of the money, or even the entire amount, was received earlier, and the loan is a formality, so that the deal does not break! in a couple of months they will close the loan and that's it!

    What shit? But the main thing is that we have absolutely nothing to do with it. No, our helicopter, no words, but let the Ugandans answer for delivery to South Sudan.
    There is no formal ban on the supply of arms to Sudan, however, "under pressure from the UN, all parties to the South Sudanese conflict pledged to refrain from acquiring weapons"
