Ukraine has never supplied Kornet anti-tank missiles to Iraq. As a Rosbalt correspondent reports, this was announced by Head of the Foreign Ministry Press Office Markian Lubkivsky at a briefing in Kiev today. He said that such allegations were not based on facts but on 'unfounded and prejudiced information.' According to official sources, Ukraine has cut off all military ties with Iraq.
