Western Arms Assistance Casts a Long Spell of Nightmare Over European Security

Since the outbreak of the Ukrainian situation, the U.S.-led NATO member states are in the race for supporting Ukraine with tanks, armored cars, long-rage artillery, portable anti-tank missiles, various small arms and enormous amount of ammunition, all of which would amount to billions of US dollars.

The West-dispatched arms to Ukraine are said to be gathered in the southern region of Poland first before being delivered to the final destinations loaded into various vehicles and even into personal cars.

The thing is that nobody knows about the whereabouts of those weapons; where they are bound for and whose hands they are placed in, once they departed.

An official document circulated around EU member states in April pointed out that a certain criminal organization has begun arms trafficking in Ukraine, which may as well pose a potential threat to the security in Europe; and in June, the Interpol and the Swedish police authorities warned that the Western arms dispatched to Kiev will end up in the hands of criminal organizations.

Meanwhile, the Czech defense minister, citing as an example of the former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia which failed completely in arms control and management, expressed his concern that same thing is happening in Ukraine now. The spokesperson for Europol also lamented that trafficking of military supplies like firearms is taking place in Ukraine and there is an intelligence report that even heavy arms might be smuggled into the organized criminals or into the hands of the terrorists.

This shows that the Western countries are on pins and needles for fear that the weapons of their own dispatch might be on the black market and ultimately fall into the hands of criminal organizations in Europe.

The fact that most of the weapons possessed by the criminal organizations in European countries are those used during the bloodshed in the Balkans in 1990s stresses the seriousness of the current situation.

The experts appraise that it is quite unreasonable to think that Ukraine, ranking 112 th among 180 countries around the world in terms of irregularities and corruption, would control arms trafficking.

Recently, an armed crook in the Middle East even uploaded a video in which he boasted of the Western weaponry purchased from Kiev-based smugglers. This is an enough representation of the open arms-trafficking status in Ukraine.

It is crystal-clear that the so called arms assistance to Ukraine by the Western countries will only bring chaos in maintaining public order in Europe and cast a long spell of nightmare over it.
