The same countries that supported the Islamic State (organization banned in Russia) with weapons in Syria are supplying weapons and ammunition to Ukraine, military expert and editor of the magazine Arsenal of the Fatherland Aleksey Leonkov said on March 19 during the program Great Game on Channel One.
“Bulgaria participated in arms deliveries to Ukraine. A lot of ammunition is Bulgarian, some is Czech, some is Polish. These are the same countries that participated in arms deliveries to ISIL (organization banned in the Russian Federation),” Leonkov said.
Leonkov said that the visit of United States Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin to Bulgaria on March 19 was related specifically to continuing the supply of Soviet-era weapons systems to Ukraine, including air defense systems.
According to Leonkov, the Russian Armed Forces’ seizure of weapons and armament depots in Ukraine reveals just the picture of arms deliveries – “we see Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, we see other countries there.”
At the same time, the military expert notes that the Ukrainian army still cannot fully replenish weapons and ammunition in conditions of full air superiority of the Russian Armed Forces.
“We see hidden depots being uncovered, where they have to go for ammunition replenishment, and we immediately hit them. As well as accumulations of troops,” the military expert said.
As a reminder, on February 24, the Russian army launched a special military operation to demilitarize and denationalize Ukraine in response to a request to protect the republics of Donbass.
