Ukraine's Arms Barons
The illicit trade in weapons from Ukraine dates back to the collapse of the USSR. The state, which 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 Kiev, the scope of illegal weapons-trafficking looms large. Find out how the weaponry makes its way out of Ukraine in our new documentary.
