The British intermediaries, probably, resold the weapon acquired in Ukraine, to the countries on which embargo extends.

About it it is spoken in the report of the British parliamentary committee on control of weapon export, report "German wave" and "Bee - Bee - Xi".

In it the British firms - intermediaries who allegedly received from the Ukrainian Public service of control of export the license for export of the easy weapon from the Soviet stocks are listed.

According to members of the committee, they easily received the list of firms in May in Kiev from the deputy minister of foreign affairs of Ukraine Alexander Gorin.

In the list it isn't specified, whether exported the weapon directly from Ukraine to customers, or it transported through Great Britain. Also cost an oborudok and weapon type isn't specified.

The head of committee Roger Berri says that the British deputies don't accuse of anything Ukraine, and pay attention of the British government to need of the best control rather.

"The point of view of committee consists that Britain has to force to carry out the export criteria, to strengthen own control of the weapon", - he noted.

In the report the committee stated concern about that British the Ministry of Foreign Affairs knew nothing about sale by Ukraine of the weapon to the British intermediary firms though this information was readily available, - and the former Soviet weapon fell into "undesirable hands".

He called the British diplomatic missions in the big countries - exporters of the weapon closer to cooperate with local bodies of export control to receive information on the British firms obtaining licenses for sale of the weapon.

In turn, the British foreign minister Deyvid Miliband ordered to make investigation rather possible an oborudok.

He also asked members of parliamentary committee not to publish led by Berry yet details of the document available for them not to prevent a consequence - after all "to the company can learn about investigation and it can lead to that those who committed a crime, will try to cover up tracks".
