Ukraine tells NATO that chemical weapons from Syria were possibly delivered to Crimea

During its visit to NATO headquarters, the Ukrainian delegation provided information about the possible arrival of chemical weapons from Syria to the Crimea, as stated by the Head of the Permanent Delegation of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, Iryna Friz, Krym.Realii reported.

According to her, a clear example is the arrival of the Nadalina ship in the port of Feodosiya at the end of October, which was unloaded in high-security conditions.

Friz said that, "all civilians left the port and military units were called to secure the place. As the information received indicates, 8-10 containers, composite boxes for transporting particularly dangerous goods, were unloaded. Taking into account the ship’s route and the fact that the ship was carrying only these 8-10 containers as well as the fact the unloading lasted longer than usual - as it took them about 30 minutes to unload each container, which is not typical, we have concluded that, most likely, we are talking about the unloading of 200 mm caliber ammunition, and, in all probability, those are chemical weapons."

In addition, she said, that there is information that indicates that missile systems were transported from the Crimea to Syria.
