Ecuador Refuses to Deliver Soviet War Equipment to US for Ukraine Conflict

In a recent interview with CNN en Español, Ecuadorian President Daniel Noboa confirmed that his country will not be delivering old Soviet war equipment to the United States, which could potentially be used by Ukraine in the ongoing conflict with Russia.

Noboa stated, “We do not want to triangulate weapons,” expressing his concern about the potential use of the old Soviet war equipment, which he had previously described as “scrap”, in an armed conflict. He made the decision after learning that the equipment might be used in the conflict in Ukraine.

The decision comes after Kevin Sullivan, a deputy assistant secretary at the US State Department, mentioned that Ecuador was considering the delivery of Soviet war equipment to Ukraine, as part of an exchange agreement with the United States. However, the final decision was left to the president of Ecuador.

After these statements, the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation rejected the characterization of the equipment as “scrap” and offered options to keep the equipment in Ecuador. President Noboa agreed with Russia and reiterated that they will not be participating in the delivery of weapons to Ukraine.

Noboa emphasized that Russia is an important trading partner for Ecuador and stated that they are not willing to violate any international treaty.

The full interview with President Daniel Noboa will be available in a new edition of “Cara a Cara” this Sunday at 7 pm (Miami and Quito time).

This decision by Ecuador adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and the global response to it.
