Documents Confirm The US Already Delivered Lethal Weapons To Ukraine (Exclusive)

…from SouthFront

SouthFront: Analysis & Intelligence has obtained exclusive photos of the contract between the Ukrainian state-run company Spetstechnoexport and the American company AirTronic USA on delivery of lethal weapons to Ukraine.

The specific contract is for the delivery of 100 PSRL-1 Launchers worth $554,575 USD.

The contract date: November 11, 2016.

The delivery date: April 8, 2017.

PSRL-1 (Precision Shoulder-fired Rocket Launcher) is a modernized version of the Russian anti-tank rocket-propelled grenade launcher RPG-7. AirTronic USA launched a serial production of the weapon in the quarter of 2016.  The company developed and now produces two modifications of the RPG-7: PSRL-1 (Precision, Shoulder-fired Rocket Launcher) and GS 777 (PSRL-2).

The weapons look like the RPG-7, but the usage of new materials allows for a decrease in mass while increasing ease of use.

The AirTronic USA launcher uses RPG-7 grenades. However, the company is developing guided grenades and increasing the effective range up to 2,000 m. Furthermore, AirTronic USA is going to develop new munitions, including thermobaric grenades and shaped-charge grenades, for the launhcher.

According to some reports, the launchers were delivered to the National Guard of Ukraine, including the Azov Regiment.

It’s interesting to note that according to the source of the photos, this delivery was an isolated case of the lethal weapons deliveries to Ukraine.

However, the contract and the delivery clearly violate US law, because the US legal bodies had not approved the lethal weapons delivery to Ukraine. Currently, Washington is still considering this option.

Some experts reached by SouthFront: Analysis & Intelligence suggest that the contract may actually represent an act of sabotage , part of the wider effort of the Obama adminsitration aimed at undermining US President Donald Trump and his declared policy towards Ukraine. The contract was reached very close to the moment when Barack Obama had to leave the White House. The contract was likely part of the ongoing campaign to undermine bilateral ties between the Trump administration and Mosow.

No matter what the reason was behind the decision, the lethal weapons delivery took place in April 2017.

According to the email received by SouthFront: Analysis & Intelligence, the source has all needed documents related to the contract and confirming the lethal weapons delivery. In this case, any independent investigation of the incident will reveal the fact of the lethal weapons delivery and confirm that the contract exists.

    I like the comment by Laura Green!
    If Poreshenko was put into power by OBAMA, then WHY in a civilized country and supposedly righteous !In GOD WE TRUST!
    WHY HAS A) OBAMA NOT BEEN ARRESTED FOR WAR CRIMES along with Tony Blair for IRAQ
    and B) Poreshenko not been Either Taken out or simply got rid of, Because It’s all about winding up RUSSIA, therefore all this including my own country Gt Britain are in for a big surprise when the Master Returns, and We know who that is, THE JUDGE OF MANKIND, by the one that created mankind in the 1st place !!
    If you think I talk crap, WHY WAS THE FLOOD with LOTS of evidence that it Happened, ALLOWED TO HAPPEN??
    Because Mankind has been down this route before, thinking that NOBODY COULD TOUCH HIM?? Well they were wrong
    If Yahweh gave birth to this world and gave it life and PUT LIFE UPON IT, HOW VALUABLE DO YOU THINK HE REGARDS LIFE??
    Like ANY FATHER, HE WILL GO SO FAR, before Chastising a rebellious child , that time is fast approaching and sorry to say AMERICA AND THE UK have been Judged along with ISRAEL
    Just HOW DUMB IS MANKIND?????????

      Dumb enough that many still cling onto the anachronistic religions that were invented as methods to control and manipulate people in a time when few were educated. I find it inexcusable for people in the modern world, with the benefits of modern education and access to a vast amount of information to still have ‘faith’ in the existence of a supernatural mystical entity called god despite there being not one single shred of evidence that he exists. Until mankind evolves past this insanity, we will remain an unenlightened, ignorant and violent bunch of monkeys who have learned to stand upright.

    Another old, shabby story….. Tired to comment….
    1/ No any weapons will help Ukraine. Only increase civilian’s deaths.
    2/ Russia helps Donbas, but is not the direct part of the conflict.
    3/ Ukies hope for the US weapons like kids wishing the gifts from Santa Claus. But knowing the reallity – nothing will help ’em. If there was no Russian steel patience – the Ukraine could be 100% demoralized and beaten by military way in …. approxim. 30 mins. Everything else is fairy-tales.

      Andrew, It looks like a few regions have already slipped away from Ukraine and announced their independence.
      Wonder how Porky is reacting to this situation?
      It’s a wonder Russia hasn’t intervened but Putin is playing his cards close to his chest as they say here in America.
      I’m a bit tense myself as there have been military helis flying over town the past week. Exercises? For what.
      Some one mentioned there were soldiers from 7 or 8 different countries up here in Northern Michigan.
      Don’t like it at all.
      The current regime in Ukraine was doomed from the start and no matter how much Vickie Nudelman bribed the fools with cookies, the outcome will be the same: very soon there is going to be an uprising against the neo-fascists.

    The State Department will simply look the other way. The Trump administration will consider this another business deal and America will once more look the ass to the rest of the world.
    America’s biggest export is now arms, to anybody who wants to overthrow any legally elected government. Its other main export is war along with death, destruction, chaos and misery for millions.
    America has no moral high ground as it has no moral compass. It is a nation without moral bearing and moral leadership. It is fiscally and morally bankrupt. The insouciance of Washington and the American people will lead to their own self destruction.

    Are there non-lethal weapons?

    • Dr. Abu-Bakr Susta  August 10, 2017 at 6:32 pm

      Davor: Yes, some electro-magneto-gravitic weaponry ONLY disables the enemy’s offensive weapons. Such defensive EMG weaponry is non-lethal, but it can enable lethal weapons.

    Business as usual !

  6. Trakkath  August 7, 2017 at 7:29 pm

    It would be naiv to think otherwise. As soon as rumors come up about anything you can be sure now that it is the truth, not a conspiracy theory.

    How about worldwide sanctions against USA? Oh sorry, I forgot its the USA who sanctions others.

    Is a smaller version available for kids playing cowboys and Indians around the house? When I grew up the most we had were cap pistols. My parents would not allow me to have a b-b gun because of the danger of putting one’s eyes out with it.

    This is a BIG deal — in violation of the spirit if not the letter of Minsk Accords endeavors for a cessation of hostilities in Ukraine. U.S., UK, EU & Israel (plus Ukie Nazi-like groups) violently overthrew the prior duly-elected & duly-recognized govt. of Ukraine — despite nonsense about ‘Russian aggression in Ukraine.’

    Despite lip service to ‘peace in Ukraine,’ Obama & Co. approved this deal; and Trump & Co. approved deliveries of sophisticated lethal weapons prolonging conflict in Ukraine — despite the Minsk Accords. When asked, the U.S. Congress REFUSED to approve lethal weapons for Ukraine — under Obama. Given increased animosity against Russia, Congress under Trump did NOT try to block deliveries.

    Trump & U.S. can no longer claim the moral high ground in Ukraine. One-Plus minute/s closer to WW3…
