Ukraine’s State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) has charged a State Border Guard Service member in Odesa Oblast with illegally selling weapons and ammunition, SBI reported via a message on its website on April 13.
“It was established that the law enforcer stole weapons from his military unit and was looking for buyers among criminals who had previously been charged with gun trafficking,” the message reads.
The investigation asserts the suspect set up the scheme in November 2022, and has since managed to sell some F-1 frag grenades.
He was apprehended on April 12, in the middle of an attempt to sell a handgun and 1,500 rounds for $600.
He now faces up to seven years in prison.
