Russian Mercenaries Are Actively Using Weapons From Occupied Crimea Against Ukrainian Warriors in Donbas

Representative from the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine Vadym Skibitskyi stated this on the air of “Donbas. Realias” programme.

Two routes are used for the delivery of weapons seized by the Russian army from the occupied Crimea to ORDLO: the first route – through the water zone of Azov Sea, and the second one – through the territory of the Russian Federation. Delivery of weapons is carried out under constant control of Russian authority. Initially, representatives of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation and the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Russian General Staff were engaged in the process. Currently, servicemen of the Southern Military District of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are supplying weapons to the occupied territory in the East of Ukraine.
