Ukrainian MP demands to punish illegal arms exporters
People, responsible for the illegal export of armaments from Ukraine, must be punished, believes Valeriy Konovalyuk, a Ukrainian MP - RIA Novosti.
"Doubtful shadow schemes lead to giant losses of money from Ukrainian budget. I hoped that having elected the President we'll be able not only make order in the sphere, but also bring to responsibility those, who had been building shadow arms business," Konovaluk said.
In 2008 Ukrspecexport company found itself in the centre of a scandal. It was accused of exporting arms to Georgia shortly before and during the armed conflict in August 2008.
Russian government accused Kyiv of illegal arms supplies to Tbilisi; the Ukrainian parliamentary commission, headed by Konovalyuk, also reported of the violations of laws and international norms.
