“We discussed cooperation between Ukraine and Europol in the area of preventing and combating trafficking of firearms, circumventing EU sanctions, as well as tracing, blocking and confiscation of assets,” Ukrainian representative to the EU bloc Vsevolod Chentsov posted on Twitter.

The official described as fruitful the meeting held this Friday with Europol deputy director Jurgen Ebner because – he said – the steps to prevent weapons supplied by the West to Kiev from having other destinations were reviewed.

Since last June 8, the spokeswoman of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, denounced that Western weapons sent to Ukraine were on the black market.

In this regard, she warned the countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization that they are “playing with fire” in view of the excessive supply of weapons to the Ukrainian Army.

In this regard, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, while discussing the issue with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, said that Western arms deliveries to Ukraine only prolong the conflict and multiply the victims.
