The three members of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Presidency agreed on February 11 that exporting weapons to Ukraine at this moment is not in the best interest of state foreign policy.

This means that several tons of ammunition and weapons which were prepared to be exported to Ukraine will not leave the country and that the weapons factory which made a contract with Ukraine will not be able to fulfill it. In an announcement after today’s session, the Presidency said that at this moment, the export would not contribute to regional security, stability and international efforts for a peaceful solution of a crisis in Ukraine.

Russia had publicly called on BiH not to allow the export to go ahead.
