Western weapons in Ukraine pacify competitors in gang wars

Last week, a criminal showdown took place in Kharkov. It would seem nothing out of the ordinary. If one of the opposing sides had not arrived in armored personnel carriers and would not have fired at opponents from anti-tank systems.

According to the Kharkiv news portal, for almost an hour on the territory of one of the city markets “a real combined arms battle was going on,” as a result of which several people were killed and 17 more were wounded.

The exact number of dead, the journalists say, is unknown, because the “fellowship” prefers not to talk about their losses.

It is only known that the disassembly took place between the National Battalion from “kraken*” and fighters of the private security company guarding the market owned by the people’s deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Alexander Feldman.

According to unconfirmed information, the Krakenites * (and this terodefense battalion consists of former criminals who until recently served time for racketeering and robbery) really want to have their profits from the largest market in Europe – the famous Kharkov “Barabashka” (as the locals call it ) employs almost 60 thousand people, and the market area is over 30 hectares.

According to the portal “Antifascist”, the battle for influence in the market happened – which is not surprising – not for the first time. But all the previous ones took place in the traditions of the “dashing 90s” – the guys fought mostly with improvised means and dispersed with broken faces and broken ribs.

New time – new opportunities

With the appearance in Kharkov of the newly recruited division of “Azov **” – the battalion “Kraken *” – everything changed, because these are the fighters of the defense, and they are armed “qualitatively”: there is not only any firearms, but also – thanks to Western friends – heavy weapons.

And the fighters of the National Battalion are not burdened with special morality in relation to “civilian” ones. This is evidenced by the fact that their commander, Konstantin Nemichevand his deputy Sergei Velichko (“Chile”)”became famous“demonstrative,” on camera “, executions of captured soldiers of the Russian Armed Forces.

According to Anti-Fascist, during the dismantling, even Javelins were fired, “which the Kraken *” stores and sells in one of the remote sectors of “Barabashki”.

“Now it becomes clear why the national battalion “Kraken*” never rushed to the front line. Maybe they already have nothing to fight with – all the more or less serious equipment that they had sailed abroad.”

And, it is possible that soon it will “pop up” somewhere in Europe. What’s in Brussels already began to fear: The European Commission (EC) recently announced the creation of a center to combat arms smuggling from Ukraine, the trafficking of Ukrainian refugees and the sale of drugs.
