08.10.2020, Kiev.

The former member of the Verkhovna Rada (the Ukrainian Parliament) from the Party of the Regions David Zhvaniya accused Poroshenko of selling weapons, including prohibited phosphorous bombs, to Islamist militants in Syria in 2014 to 2016, on his YouTube channel on October 8.

“I am preparing a report about Poroshenko’s selling munitions to Syria. Those included 400-kg phosphorous bombs. They were sold throughout 2014 to 2016 to a group opposing Bashar al-Assad. I have evidence,” he said.

According to Zhvaniya, Poroshenko ordered to set the munitions storage in Kalinovka on fire in 2017 in order to cover up the crime.

According to the former Rada member, the former leader of the state sold weapons in the period when Kiev regime’s army was short of weapons. According to Zhvaniya, he can support all this statements with evidence, which he plans to provide in his report to the State Bureau of Investigation of Ukraine.

The storage in the town of Kalinovka, Vinnitsa region, was used to store missiles for the Smerch, Uragan, and Grad MLRSs. The fire began on September 26, 2017. The population of Kalinovka was evacuated during the fire; two people were injured. A sabotage-related criminal investigation was initiated.

According to Zhvaniya, the former prime minister Arseny Yatsenyuk, the former acting president Aleksandr Turchinov, and the Mayor of Kiev Vitaly Klichko are responsible for establishing a criminal organization, involvement in the organization’s crime in the form of coup d’etat, and misuse of power.
