Bulgarian arms dealer admits arms blown up in Czech depot intended for Ukraine

In an email to The New York Times, Bulgarian arms dealer Emilian Gebrev acknowledged that he had stored ammunition at the Vrbětice arms depot and admitted that the consignment that was blown up in 2014 was intended for Ukraine.

The Czech government has accused Russian agents of being behind the series of deadly explosions that killed two people and caused damage to the tune of one billion crowns, triggering an unprecedented diplomatic row with Russia and a mutual expulsion of diplomats.
