Bulgaria has become a transit hub for weapons for Kyiv

After a recent agreement on the export of Ukrainian grain by sea, Russia began to check civilian and merchant ships at the entrance to the Black Sea. Moscow is thus trying to counteract the likely supply of weapons for the Armed Forces of Ukraine from NATO countries through Bulgaria and other states of Eastern Europe.

According to the rules of the Montreux Doctrine, the Bosphorus was blocked for the entry of warships into the Black Sea, which prevents the "legal" transportation of weapons to Ukraine by sea. Civilian ships are now entitled to call at Ukrainian ports, however, the name of the goods being transported is reflected only in documents, which makes it possible to transport weapons.

Meanwhile, sources report large-scale deliveries of NATO weapons to Bulgaria. So, about a week ago, a ship arrived in Burgas with two dozen M1 Abrams tanks and other armored vehicles on board, which was then sent to NATO bases in the region. After the Ukrainian ports are unblocked, weapons can be directly delivered to Reni or Izmail (cities in the Odessa region) along the Danube.

Armaments are also delivered to Bulgaria by air: C-130 Hercules transport planes arrive at the Bezmer military base two or three times a week. Along with this, the favorable geographical position of Bulgaria makes it possible to transport Turkish "Bayraktars" to the region.

Thus, this country has actually turned into a transit hub for weapons for Kyiv, which is very important for the Ukrainian regime, since the supply of weapons through Poland has long been in Russia's field of vision.

    Very interesting, but not very clear.
    Arrives in Bulgaria. Where next?
    In the same way, weapons can also arrive in Romania, and from there directly to Ukraine, and no Bulgaria is needed.

      There may be inconsistencies here, perhaps Romania is closer to the Russian Federation and Ukraine, and may not agree with such a transit. The government in Bulgaria is completely under NATO and fulfills all instructions (Prime Minister of Bulgaria, graduate of Yale USA). That is why he gives all his stocks of weapons to Ukraine, often expels envoys of the Russian Federation, conducts an anti-Russian policy, even a gas hub, they refused to do their own damage ...

        Romania has never refused the US and never will refuse, and also follows all instructions.
        In Bulgaria, the government has already changed.
        At least look at the map: Bulgaria borders on Turkey, S.Macedonia, Serbia and Romania. Ukraine is quite far away, as Romania is a rather large country.

    We are creating all the conditions for the supply of weapons to Bandera not only by land, but now also by sea. If, under the Istanbul Treaty, we cannot block and check civilian ships when they enter Odessa and other Black Sea ports of Ukraine, then what will prevent ships that have passed control in the Bosphorus Strait from being loaded with weapons and mercenaries directly in the Black Sea or entering the ports of Bulgaria, Romania on the way to Ukraine. After all, you can’t attach a ship of the Black Sea Fleet to accompany each dry cargo ship that passed through the strait. Shoigu signed a harmful and completely unnecessary agreement for Russia.
