Amnesty Intl says Ukraine involved in weapons shipments to South Sudan

The international non-government Amnesty International human rights group has claimed Ukraine was involved in weapons shipments to South Sudan in 2014 between a Ukrainian state arms producing company based in the United Arab Emirates.

"…The weapons in question form part of a previously undisclosed 2014 contract between a Ukrainian state arms company and a UAE-based company to procure US$169 million of weapons on behalf of South Sudan. These include thousands of machine guns, mortars, rocket propelled grenades and millions of rounds of ammunition," the NGO said on its website on September 25.
