African “Peace Missionaries” Brought 12 Containers of Weapons to Russia

On June 15, the team of the president of South Africa, on the way to Ukraine and, further, to Russia, tried to import tons of weapons into Poland

On June 16, a delegation from several African countries arrived in Ukraine, including the president of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa and his team. As a standard, a foreign plane landed in Poland in order to transfer to a train to Ukraine. However, Ramaphosa's team could not accompany him to Ukraine because they brought 12 containers of weapons with them. We remind you that Ramaphosa travelled to Ukraine with the intention of talking about his "peace plan" for settling Russia's war against Ukraine.

The president's squires did not have the necessary permits to bring weapons into Poland, and they were asked to leave them at the airport and go to Ukraine unarmed. However, the head of the presidential guard called the proposal of the Polish border guards "surprising and racist" and remained with all the guards and weapons on the plane. He also called the situation "deliberate sabotage of the peace mission" of South Africa. This was reported by journalist Amanda Khoza, who was part of the team accompanying Ramaphosa. According to her, the presidential guard did not report an armoury on board the aircraft, and therefore Italy withdrew permission to enter presidential aircraft into its own airspace.

After meeting with president Zelensky, Ramaphosa his 12 containers of weapons, set out to negotiate with Putin.
