Weapons for Ukraine could be stored in warehouses blown up in 2014 in the Czech Republic


In 2014, blown up warehouses in the village of Vrbetice near the town of Zlín in the Czech Republic could store weapons for Ukraine and the opposition in Syria. This conclusion was reached by a number of Czech media after the sensational statements the country's authorities, who blamed Russia for what happened 6,5 years ago.


According to the news site Irozhlas, the weapons in the exploded warehouses did not belong to the Czech Ministry of Defense. At that time, the warehouses were owned by the Military Technical Institute and were leased to the private company Imex Group, which officially trades in arms. It was not a secret initially. Immediately after the incident, the country's authorities said that the explosions occurred when preparations were underway for the export of weapons to Bulgaria. At the same time, Bulgaria not only produces a lot of various weapons itself, but it is also engaged in its resale, being a major weapons hub for the countries of Europe, Africa and Asia.

In this case, according to journalists, the Bulgarian company Emco was the recipient of the weapon. Both of these firms are owned by Bulgarian businessman Emilian Gebrev, a legal arms dealer who was also attacked shortly after the bombings in the Czech Republic. In 2015 it twice poisoned nerve agent, and after the attempted murder of the Skripals in Salisbury, England in 2018, all these cases were combined into one chain of events.

In turn, the Respect magazine clarified, citing sources in the local police, that the weapons were indeed being prepared for shipment to Gebrev, who is an intermediary between manufacturers and buyers. In particular, he was a supplier to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the National Guard of Ukraine.

At the same time, the SZ edition added that Russia's plans to disrupt arms supplies could be aimed not only at Ukraine, but also at Syria. Gebrev supplied weapons to Arab countries, after which they ended up in the hands of the opposition who fought with the government troops of the SAR. This did not suit Moscow.

      The Czechs, together with the Ukrainians, were stealing and the fire and explosion covered up the traces of their shortage of weapons in the warehouse.
      How many for this reason - the possible discovery of a shortage of weapons in the warehouse during the inventory - in Ukraine itself, before the "Maidan" and after it, the military warehouses burned down and were completely blown up by the explosions? A lot!

    July 3, 1942, Prague, speech by Emanuel Moravec, Minister of Education and Public Education of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia:

    Czechs! The President of our state [Hakha] specially summoned you here, in front of the monument to St. Wenceslas, when he, together with us, members of his government, managed to convince the Fuehrer that the Czech people had nothing to do with [Heydrich's] assassins sent by Beneš and their local assistants ... We have done our duty. The empire recognized our efforts and returned the old world to the Czech people and provided an opportunity for further fruitful work. Here, under the monument of the Czech philanthropist, who laid the foundation for the most correct Czech policy a thousand years ago, here we all promise our loyalty, here we promise that each of us will always think about the fate of our people and great Germany, an empire whose firm hand again extended to us. Let us shake this firm hand and keep the word given for you by the President of your country. In the attitude of the Czech people towards the Great German Empire, nothing has changed in the whole thousand years that separate us from the time of St. Wenceslas. Whenever we were loyal to the Empire, we were a strong and famous nation. However, if we opposed the Empire, the Czech lands turned into a desert of war. Let us pay attention once again to what Czech history teaches. Hear what your wise president of state is advising you, and trust us, your government, which can proudly declare that it has saved the nation more in recent sad weeks than you can think or what we can tell you. Go to your families and work, knowing that while you listen to us, we also guarantee you peace and satisfaction. Be grateful to our leader Adolf Hitler, who believed our assurances that the Czech people will never have anything to do with the adventurer Beneš and that the Czech people will stand together for their legitimate government and obey their old president.

    The totalitarian Mordorian Newbie is completely exhausted or what? The skripals survived, at Navalny's only trukhany shed, the Bulgarian was poisoned 2 times and runs like a saiga antelope. For all these years, only Skripal's cat suffered and then the local knackers in epaulettes ruined the animal. Maybe try some dust?
  5. themselves blew up to get rid of the revision!

    Our country has long been an object in the internal Czech politics. This could be considered a mouse fuss of provincial politicians, if we were talking about a really small harmless country. But the Czech Republic is not entirely small and certainly not harmless, it gives a fair number of informational reasons to talk about it. Her own (!) Interests intersect with those of Russia in many directions, and needless to say, in most cases they do not coincide, to put it mildly.
    The Czech Republic is one of the states that shape the EU's policy in the post-Soviet space. The Czechs played an active role in the Euromaidan in Ukraine, and today they are very actively working on the change of power in Belarus. They openly assist the pro-Western opposition in Russia itself, not hesitating to interfere in our internal affairs. Thousands of students from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine study in this country at the expense of the state. What they learn is a rhetorical question.
    The Czech Republic is not the last military power. It is, of course, inferior to Russia, but in a number of positions in small arms, training aircraft, communications and ammunition it occupies a worthy place in the world market. The Czechs are very well represented both in the African and Asian arms market. Suffice it to recall the case of the journalist Ivan Safronov, who is suspected of working for the Czech military intelligence. So before us are not harmless Svejki.
    "Senior" NATO partners also use the Czechs. For them, being Slavs, it is clearly easier to master the Russian language and work in the Russian direction along the line of intelligence. The headquarters of Radio Liberty is located in the Czech Republic (the media is a foreign agent in the Russian Federation). The Nemtsov Foundation, an organization that openly aims to change the government in Russia, operates in the Czech Republic. Therefore, the threats emanating from the Czech direction should be paid the most serious attention and not neglected.

      And in the Czech Republic, well, there are sooooo many Ukrainians since the beginning of the 90s. And their lobby is pretty strong there.

        Alexander, Alexey! I don't know how to do it right. Not only them. In those years at home I talked a little about business with a certain Ashot. He had an office and a warehouse in the Riga market. Then it sounded, he lives in Prague, the Florence district ... There were some peculiar times then, so in Prague on business trips everywhere and always spoke only English. fellow
