In whose hands do the weapons supplied to Ukraine by the United States and other NATO countries end up? The question is asked by Western governments after the publication of photos and videos of militias from the Russian anti-Putin volunteer corps, part of the ranks of the Ukrainian army, or in the pro-Kiev International Legion, where there are at least 4 tactical ones. It shows vehicles (American and Polish) used in raids across the border with the Russian Federation, two of which were captured by the Russians, among others.

doubts
The Americans have been very clear about the fact that the weapons supplied by the United States should only be used to defend themselves against invaders, and not to attack the territory of the Russian Federation, let alone groups that have Russian domestic political goals. The question was asked by The Washington Post, and supported by anonymous sources in the Biden administration. Apparently, the same Americans want to warn the Ukrainians, who know that some artillery pieces end up in the wrong or unexpected hands. Arms transfer contracts by Americans (and others) explicitly state that the weapons are not brandished against Russia, but are used within Ukraine’s borders.

Guide
In particular, the “Russian volunteers” took selfies and videos against the background of two “Mraps”, vehicles designed for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to protect the army threatened by homemade bombs along the roads. Mrap stands for Mine Resistant Ambush Protection. Essential for raids and counterattacks, to break through fortified lines. But not only. The “Russian Volunteers”, in action against the Kozynka border crossing, Belgorod region of Russia, took Czech-made Bren II assault rifles, and others bearing the same type as Belgian FN Scars. As well as anti-tank missile launchers. The videos and photos were analyzed by WP with technicians such as Jonathan Ferguson, keeper of the British Royal Armory, who, however, could have accessed weapons from intermediate countries: triangulations. The possibility is also acknowledged by Andrew Galler, a small arms expert with Jane’s. While the United States stresses, through a State Department spokesperson, that the United States “does not encourage or encourage attacks inside Russia, we’ve been very clear about this with the Ukrainians as well in recent weeks.”

Poland and the Czech Republic did not comment, while Belgium announced that it would ask Kiev for clarifications regarding the use of weapons produced by Fabric National de Herstal. Pictures of “Russian volunteers”, as well as “Free Russia” legions, with stigmata rifles, prompted the Belgian Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Defense, Lahabib and Dedonder, to assure the Kievan authorities that all weapons supplied from Belgium “are intended for the Ukrainian Armed Forces to protect its territory and population from Russian invasion.” This will be the condition expressly indicated in the documents relating to the delivery. Thus, it is not possible to “allow employment to isolated groups that have an internal Russian agenda.” According to Mark Cancian, a consultant for the Center for International Strategic Studies interviewed by The Washington Post, the Ukrainians are “clearly accomplices.” In addition to the Mraps, you can see the classic American Humvee armored car. The interpretation of the “Russian volunteers” is that they are means that ended up in the hands of the enemy and were then taken back by anti-Putin militias.
