According to the newspaper, since the beginning of the special operation, Ukrainian state-owned companies began to request intermediaries in the United States and other countries to provide tanks, helicopters, planes and mortars.
According to the NYT, both London and Washington financed arms deals involving third countries and intermediaries. The material notes that US brokers are searching for shells for Ukraine at factories in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Romania.
The newspaper obtained documents according to which, in June last year, an arms dealer from the Czech Republic offered Ukraine ammunition and a dozen Soviet-style attack planes worth approximately $185 million. Luxembourg, in turn, supplies Czech-made weapons to kyiv.
