The rockets belonged to the JSC Rosoboronexport, the sole state intermediary agency for Russia's exports/imports of defense-related and dual-use products, technologies and services.

The military cargo has not been stored in accordance with its name, but only with the number of containers and estimated weight.

 According to the report, the Russian Federation used Ukrainian Sea ports as the transit point for supplying ammunition to the third countries.

"This weapon arsenal could be used by the Russian Special Forces in order to create the so-called ammunition depot on Eastern Ukraine.  The purpose of this was to destabilize the situation in the region by the Russia-baked diversion groups”, - the report said.
