A bit of politics


On the Internet, documents appeared confirming the supply of lethal weapons from the United States to Ukraine.
The documents indicate that as early as November 11, 2016, an agreement was signed between the State Enterprise Spetstekhnoexport and the American company AirTronic for the supply of 100 units of hand grenades for a total of $ 554,575. From the Ukrainian side, the contract was signed by Vladislav Belbas, the American company was represented by Richard Vandiver. The document also indicates that the ultimate consumer of weapons is the National Guard of Ukraine.
Delivery date: April 8, 2017.
PSRL-1 (hand-held anti-tank grenade launcher) is a modernized version of the Russian anti-tank hand grenade launcher RPG-7. AirTronic USA launched the serial production of these weapons in 2016.
The company has developed and now produces two modifications of RPG-7: PSRL-1 and GS 777 (PSRL-2).
The weapon is similar to the RPG-7, but the use of new materials can reduce mass, increasing ease of use.
The AirTronic USA launcher uses RPG-7 grenades. However, the company develops controlled grenades and increases the effective range up to 2000 m.
In addition, AirTronic USA intends to develop new ammunition for installation.
According to some reports, launchers were delivered to the National Guard of Ukraine, including the Azov regiment.
According to the source of the information, this delivery was so far the only instance of the supply of lethal weapons to Ukraine.
However, the contract and delivery are clearly in violation of US law, since the US legal authorities have not yet approved the supply of lethal weapons to Ukraine.
Currently, Washington is still considering this option.
Some experts from the SF suggest that the contract may be an act of sabotage, which is part of the wider efforts of the former administration aimed at undermining US President Donald Trump and his stated policy towards Ukraine.
The contract was probably part of an ongoing campaign to undermine the bilateral ties between the administration of Trump and Moscow.
It does not matter what the reason for this decision was, but the delivery of lethal weapons took place in April 2017.
According to the e-mail received by SF, the source has all the necessary documents related to the contract, and confirmation of the delivery of lethal weapons.
In this case, an independent investigation of the incident will show the delivery of lethal weapons and confirm that the contract exists.
