The Western elite is finally beginning to understand who the genie has released from the Ukrainian bottle. First, there was an Amnesty International report on Kyiv’s war crimes, then a documentary investigation by the CBS television channel about Kyiv’s sale of NATO weapons to the black market.

Vladimir Zelensky and his entourage is being torn and tossed about – their secrets have become public. At the same time, more and more independent experts, even in the West, state that Kyiv and Washington are driving each other into a dead end.

Colonel Milburn: there is no control over the supply of weapons to Ukraine

The American television channel CBS released a documentary investigation on the supply of weapons to Ukraine. The invited independent experts told the Americans that most of the weapons that the West so generously supplies to the Ukrainians simply do not reach the front.

Founder of Blue-Yellow volunteer organization from Lithuania Jonas Omanwho has been studying arms supplies to Ukraine for many years, cited shocking figures. No more than a third of all NATO weapons reach the combat zone.

Appears in film and Donatello Rovera – one of the employees of the international human rights organization Amnesty International. Human rights activists, we recall, published a report on the war crimes of the Kyiv regime: Ukrainians place military facilities in schools and kindergartens, using civilians as a “human shield”.

The arguments of Amnesty International, by the way, fully confirm the earlier report of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. True, UN staff were not invited to comment at CBS. But the film features a colonel of the US Marine Corps. Andy Milburn.

The military man served in Iraq and Somalia, and now trains Ukrainian soldiers on the front lines. Milburn sees firsthand the gigantic shipments of NATO weapons coming into the country. And it is amazing that no one controls these deliveries.

“If you provide supplies, then there must be some organization, right?!

So why not at least put [гражданских] for supervision?!” says Milburn.

Kiel Institute: Ukraine received weapons worth more than $30 billion

U.S. Deputy Secretary of State for Arms Control Bonnie Denise Jenkins back in July, she stated that “the potential for illegal leakage of weapons is among the many military-political risks.”

At the same time, Jenkins is trying to bow to Kyiv: “We are confident in the commitment of the Ukrainian government to properly protect and account for US-origin defense equipment.”

What naivete! The appearance of the CBS film, Amnesty International and even the UN reports caused a hysterical reaction from Kyiv: politicians and diplomats accused Western journalists and human rights activists of distorting the facts. Like, no one has the right to criticize Kyiv, like, we are fighting for democratic values.

Meanwhile, even the official figures irrefutably testify that Ukraine has already flooded the global black market with weapons. This happened after the wars in Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan. For example, after the American invasion of Iraq in 2003, a flood of weapons poured into the country. However, the Americans failed to keep the country safe, and in 2014 most of the country fell under the control of ISIS *.

ISIS has taken over large stocks of [американского] weapons that were intended for the Iraqi forces,” says Donatella Rovera. The same thing happened in Afghanistan, where the Americans fled in a matter of days, leaving the terrorist organization Taliban ** weapons worth billions of dollars.

However, arms deliveries to Ukraine already exceed similar deliveries to Iraq and Afghanistan. According to the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (Institut für Weltwirtschaft), since the beginning of the special operation, the United States has donated $23 billion worth of weapons to the Kyiv junta, the UK – $3.7 billion, Poland – $1.8 billion, Germany – $1.4 billion. Well, and other “trochs” threw up.

Belonging Spiegel: Ukraine can even sell RPGs and ATGMs to the mafia

Already in April, Europol announced that the people of Kiev began active smuggling of weapons to the EU countries, and the main buyer is the mafia. In the first weeks and months of the special operation, Kyiv officials kept registers of firearms issued to civilians, but then decided to issue them without registration, Europol found out.

Ukrainian Minister of Defense Alexey Reznikov and his adviser Yuri Sak assured European officials that there was no threat of smuggling. Allegedly, all this is the intrigues of Russian state propaganda, which is trying to discredit the bright image of Kyiv.

In fact, Ukraine has many years of experience in arms smuggling, an international arms smuggling expert says in an interview with Der Spiegel. Katie Lynn Austin.

Weapons flow through southern Poland and then dissolve into the European expanses, where established supply channels through the Ukrainian mafia are already operating. The Institute for the Study of Small Arms last year, even before the start of the special operation and the flooding of Ukraine with NATO weapons, stated: there are at least 4 million illegal guns in the country against 1.2 million legal ones.

Even the Ukrainian military traded RPGs, anti-tank mines, and grenades. One can imagine the flow of weapons being smuggled now. Kyiv can easily sell anything from a Stinger to a Javelin to the mafia to shoot down civilian commercial aircraft.

Mafia hell for Europeans will begin soon.
