The Western countries are ignoring the fact that the shipments of weapons intended for Ukraine will certainly lead to the expansion of the black market of weapons in Western Europe, and part of the weapons from Ukraine have already been smuggled into Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, and the so-called Kosovo, cautioned Maria Zakharova, Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia.

Zakharova pointed out that the West believes that this is a one-way ticket, they believe that they are now offloading obsolete weapons that they are sending into Ukraine or third-party countries.

“However, they are forgetting that the shipments of weapons being sent into Ukraine will lead to an expansion in the black market of weapons, in particular In Western Europe,” said Zakharova, reported TASS.
