Documents show Washington delivered [at least] half a million dollars worth of weapons to Ukraine
Our editors obtained a curious document of the U.S. State Department, which directly indicates active arms deliveries by the United States to Ukraine through Bulgaria:
The scheme is as follows. Company AMI GLOBAL SECURITY, LLC exports from Portland, Oregon 52 silencers to the sniper rifle Barrett (cost of 52 silencers – $139 100) and 15 packages of spare parts for these deadly weapons (cost – $363 840). The total cost of delivery, therefore, is $502 940 – half a million dollars.
Silencer installed on a Barrett M107A1
Spare parts kit for Barrett M107A1:
In the column “Country of Ultimate Destination” it proudly says “UKRAINE”, and under the “Foreign End-User” – “National Guard of Ukraine, Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine”.
However, on the way the goods will pass another country. The intermediary in this transaction (identified as “Foreign Consignee”) is a company Bulcomers KS Ltd., located in the city of Sofia (Bulgaria). It appears such a mediator is necessary for a cover-up and a conversion of the goods into some “auto parts”. And in the end, many goods are delivered to Ukraine from Bulgaria. Who will inspect all of them? But deliveries to Ukraine from the US of this nature are guaranteed to attract attention.
Thus, in fact, the United States began to supply lethal weapons to Ukraine. Given the demands of these rifles for weather conditions and operation, the parts for them are essential for active use. And why does the Ukrainian national guard need these rifles and their parts during a ceasefire? That’s right – for battle, that is, for a violation of this ceasefire, which are recorded every day. In addition, knowing the “life and customs” of national guardsmen, you can imagine how many bullets fired through the silencers provided by the USA and Bulgaria, will end up in the bodies of civilians of Novorossia. The picture is more than disturbing: the State Department is actually churning out licenses for murder during a ceasefire, and brothers-slavs Bulgarians “bring the cartridges,” passed by American benefactors. In the long term nothing can change this sad state of affairs, unless it’s widely publicized…
