The goal of the “humanitarian”convoy wasn’t bringing aid to civilians. It was robbery of Ukraine’s strategic defense equipment enterprises in Donetsk and Luhansk, specifically the “Topaz” company which produces modern radars such as “Kolchuga” and equipment from its Luhansk plant which produces ammunition for small arms.

Currently, according to the National Security Council, 184 trucks from the so-called “humanitarian convoy” have left Ukraine. All of them left without any verification by Ukrainian border guards.

The “Topaz” plant manufactures radar for air defense for which there are no analogues in the world.
