A colonel of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine, on the instructions of a former serviceman of the State Border Service, illegally exported weapons and ammunition from the area of ​​the Joint Forces Operation in Eastern Ukraine.

Another suspect was also reportedly arrested.

This was reported in a statement by the State Bureau of Investigation of Ukraine.

As established by the investigation, the ammunition and weapons were stolen by a former border guard during his service in 2015-2017, and was stored in a garage rented by him in Severodonetsk.

“In September 2019, during a search (while the suspect was trying to export the items), almost 6,000 5.45 mm rounds of ammunition, more than 4,000 7.62 mm rounds of ammunition, 4 RPG-26 grenades, 1 RPG-22 anti-tank grenade were seized in the suspect’s official’s government-provided vehicle. In addition, 5 unified fuses for hand grenades, 5 RGD-5 grenades and an F-1 grenade more were discovered,” the investigative committee’s report said.

Both defendants were informed about suspicion of illegal handling of ammunition (part 1 of article 263 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine). Now they will have a criminal case opened against them.

Urgent investigative actions are ongoing to identify possible buyers of ammunition and other persons involved in the illegal scheme.

In case of proof of guilt, the suspects face punishment in the form of imprisonment for a term of 3 to 7 years.

Thye were not for me. I have no space. I already has an Armata and a bunch of old Stingers. Maybee giving my garden a basement might do it.

It look like hobby to me. We still find weapons from WW2, when Our Grandparents die. Last year it was a machinegun and 2 pistols.

Hard to say if the punishment of 3-5 years is he right level. If guilty, I would say the thief also should pay for destruction.

According to information published by
the Russian press agency TASS on August 20, 2020, Russian Navy Admiral
Nakhimov Kirov-class upgraded heavy nuclear cruiser of project 11442M
left the pool of Sevmash Shipyard and berthed at the embankment, the
enterprise said.
The cruiser had large units and hull constructions replaced and new insulation and cables installed. 3D
modeling was used in the overhaul.

The warship will now have life-support
systems, radio-technical equipment, power supplies, missile and
artillery arms replaced. Admiral Nakhimov will have new tactical
characteristics and will reinforce the surface fleet of the Russian
Navy.
The Defense Ministry said Navy
Commander-in-Chief Admiral Nikolai Yevmenov chaired a meeting on the
overhaul and upgrade of the cruiser and called to closely interact with
the United Shipbuilding Corporation and strictly observe the overhaul
schedule.
Admiral Nakhimov is the third
battlecruiser of the Russian Navy’s Kirov class. The Admiral Nakhimov
Orlan-class cruiser was laid on May 17, 1983 by the Baltic Shipyard and
floated on April 25, 1986. It joined the Navy on December 30, 1988 as
the Kalinin. The cruiser was renamed in 1992.

Sevmash has been overhauling the warship
since 1999. The upgrade has actually begun in 2013. The cruiser will be
armed with 174 VLS (Vertical Launching System) tubes including Kalibr
anti-surface missiles and Onix anti-ship cruise missiles and
Tsirkon hypersonic missile in the future.

Kirov class accommodates three Kamov Ka-27PL or Ka-25RT helicopters. The
Kamov-27 (Nato codename Helix) is equipped for anti-submarine warfare
with surface search radar, sonobuoys, dipping sonar, and magnetic
anomaly detectors. The Ka-27 can be armed with torpedoes, bombs, mines
and rockets. The Ka-25RT (Hormone) helicopter is the predecessor of the
Ka-27.
The propulsion system of the Kirov Class consits on a
combination of nuclear power and steam turbine, with four nuclear
reactors and two auxiliary boilers. The four steam turbines deliver
28,000hp. Two shafts drive two five-bladed, fixed-pitch propellers. The
propulsion system provides a full speed of 31kt.

They told us the fable that liberalism guarantees that wealth falls from top to bottom and thus is distributed to everyone, the famous trickle down, the land of crazy people is the demonstration that in reality these things do not happen, and the effect cascade is a shower of shit, so the mass of poor have to make do as they can, no one can morally condemn those who struggle individually for their survival, and maybe they have been forced to fight alongside the Nazi-fags in the land of the mad, without the courage to rebel but in any case sabotaging, with theft, the terrorist operation against those who really have the courage to rebel.

Poor guys, they probably needed the money for poor paid service.
