Pushilin: The West made Ukraine one of the largest suppliers of weapons on black market

Donetsk, SANA- Denis Pushilin, the acting head of the Donetsk People’s Republic, stressed that Western support for Kiev with weapons has made Ukraine become one of the largest arms suppliers on the black market.

Pushilin told Russia Today (RT) website that weapons supplied to Ukraine from Western countries are easily accessible on the black market and through the underground internet.

Among the weapons (supplied to Ukraine) sold on the black market and transported to other countries, including African countries, are the US-made FGM-148 Javelin missiles, Pushilin explained.

 He added, “these weapons fall into the hands of criminal terrorist organizations. This makes the United States, Germany and France among the states sponsor terrorism.”

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari said earlier that weapons used in the Ukrainian conflict are being smuggled to terrorists in the Lake Chad region.

Experts also warned of risk of Western weapons provided by European countries to Ukraine, to reach terrorist groups on the African continent.
