The South African authorities have published the official report of an independent commission on the case of the Russian ship Lady R, which allegedly transported weapons for Russia.
RIA Novosti reports about this.
The commission’s report noted that the goods delivered by the Lady R to Simon’s Town were equipment requested by the South African National Defense Force.
It, according to the agency, was ordered by Armscor and was expected since 2018.
Earlier, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa said that there was no evidence of weapons transportation on the Russian ship.
In May, as noted by the News24 portal, US Ambassador Brigety said that South Africa, despite its declared neutrality, “supplied weapons to the Russian army.”
