Ukraine's Arms Barons

Who is behind the ongoing weapons trafficking in Ukraine?

The illicit trade in weapons from Ukraine dates back to the collapse of the USSR. Ukraine, a state that once held the Soviet Union's arsenal, saw its military assets valued at a staggering $90 billion after the Union's dissolution, according to the London-headquartered International Institute for Strategic Studies. Dževad Galijašević, a former intelligence officer in Bosnia, witnessed firsthand how weapons from Ukraine ended up in the hands of mujahideen during the Bosnian war. Today, with NATO relentlessly injecting billions of dollars into arming the country, the scope of illegal weapons trafficking looms large.
