The General Prosecutor’s Office (GPU) and Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) found an unprecedented stockpile of weapons, ammunition and explosives illegally taken from the war zone, the GPU reported to Ukrayinska Pravda.

The search started on July 6 in the station of ‘Dnipro-1’ special police regiment in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast.

It was conducted jointly by the Security Service, National Police and State Border Guard Service. "We found an unexpected number of weapons, ammunition and explosives that were used during fights with ‘DNR’ and ‘LNR’ militants and Russian proxies and illegally written-off. In fact, they were stolen from the war zone," the GPU claimed.


As the operation is ongoing, the GPU is determining legal measures to seize the weapons and identity the persons involved.
