    Ukraine says it has uncovered major arms corruption – By George Wright (BBC News) / Jan 28, 2024

    Ukraine’s security service says it has uncovered corruption in an arms purchase by the military worth about $40m (£31m).

    The SBU said five senior people in the defence ministry and at an arms supplier were being investigated.

    It said the defence officials signed a contract for 100,000 mortar shells in August 2022.

    Payment was made in advance, with some funds transferred abroad, but no arms were ever provided.

    Corruption has been a major stumbling block in Ukraine’s bid to join the European Union.
