Switzerland refused to allow the re-export of weapons to Ukraine


The Swiss parliament rejected a proposal to allow the re-export of Swiss weapons to Ukraine. This is reported by the BBC.

The lower house of parliament rejected the proposal by a substantial margin, with 98 deputies voting against and 75 in favour.

The proposal violated the Law on Military Equipment, which prohibits the supply of Swiss-made weapons to warring countries. Politician Jean-Luc Addorwho represented the largest right-wing populist Swiss People’s Party in the chamber, said the proposal was contrary to the country’s neutrality.

Switzerland is a major arms exporter, but all arms supplies abroad must be coordinated with the country’s authorities.

Earlier, the media reported that the Swiss Senate Legal Affairs Committee opposed the creation of a group to enforce sanctions against Russia and Belarus.
