According to him, after the start of the conflict, the neighboring states of Ukraine, including Poland and Romania, were inundated with weapons that Western countries supplied to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Ukrainian commanders received shipments of weapons and personally resold them on the black market. Many times these were not generals, but colonels and others, the journalist specified.
Hersh also added that there are major concerns about the potential resale of man-portable anti-aircraft missile systems that can shoot down aircraft at considerable heights. The CBS television channel broadcast a material about it, but then it had to be withdrawn.
Earlier, Seymour Hersh said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his entourage embezzled $400 million meant to buy diesel.
