MOSCOW, October 15. /TASS/. Ukrainian authorities will increase the number of roadblocks on the roads leading to Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, to curb sharp growth in illegal weapons trafficking from the area of a military operation in the south-east of the country.
The amount of weapons confiscated in the Ukrainian capital has quadrupled on the previous quarter of this year, Kiev police chief Oleksandr Tereshchuk told Ukrainian edition Segodnya.ua. According to him, even volunteers are engaged in weapons smuggling.
“They are delivering food products in the military operation area. We also detain massive weapons supplies frequently. For instance, on Monday road police have detained a Mercedes in which 14 grenades, 13 fuses to them, 150 cartridges to a Kalashnikov assault rifle AKSU-74 and five pistol flare lights were found. Moreover, a combat grenade was found in a bag of a woman in the car” Tereshchuk said.
Meanwhile, in his words, weapons brought from the military operation zone are used in crimes committed in the Ukrainian capital.
Nine checkpoints are placed on thoroughfares in Kiev.
Weapons traffickers mostly trade arms for food products which Ukrainian army formations are short of in the area of hostilities, media said.
