The Americans detained a ship with tons of Russian weapons

The vessel detained in the Arabian Sea was without any identification marks, the US Navy says

The US military detained an unmarked ship on which they found Russian and Chinese weapons. The incident occurred in the Arabian Sea. In general, the Americans seized:

— dozens of Russian anti-tank guided missiles;
— thousands of Chinese assault rifles;
— hundreds of machine guns, sniper rifles, and grenade launchers;
— optical sights.

This was announced by the fifth fleet of the US Navy on Twitter. The US military also published a photo of the found weapons and a video from the detained vessel.

The US military did not report on the possible “owners” of tons of weapons and their potential use.

Recall that the United States recently threatened its allies with sanctions for buying weapons from Russia. The State Department particularly noted Turkey, which is negotiating with Russia on the second purchase of the S-400 air defense system.

At the same time, Russia itself was ranked in the TOP 5 world leaders in military spending at the end of the year.
