Russia provided 5 tons of explosives and weapons to Yanukovych in January to disperse the Maidan

Explosives and weapons that were probably used to shoot at protesters on Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kyiv were delivered from Russia, Ukraine’s Security Service Chief Valentyn Nalyvaichenko said at a press conference today

“Somewhere around January 20th, two military cargo aircrafts from Chkalovsk, Russia, landed in Hostomel and Zhuliany airports near Kyiv,” he said. “They delivered 5,100kg of explosives, impact munitions and additional weapons.”

According to Nalyvaichenko, all these materials are recorded in documents. “This is an element of one military crime,” he commented.

Nalyvaichenko also noted that the models of these weapons have been disclosed. They were “produced at a Russian R&D institute in the town of Sergiyev Posad, among other places.”

“It is now crucial to understand and get an answer to the following question: who ordered all this, and how and what for the Russian supplier delivered such huge amount of weapons and explosives,” Nalyvaichenko said.

According to his earlier report, 26 employees of FSB, Russia’s security service, were involved in mass killings of protesters on the Maidan.
