A Ukrainian businessman named Volodymyr Verbonol and partners were behind the company that owned the ammonium nitrate shipment.
The company was part of a sprawling, decades-old network involved in chemical trading since at least the early 2000s.
The network disguised its operations behind at least half a dozen trade names and various strawmen and shell companies.
Offshore service providers in Cyprus and the United Kingdom facilitated the network’s operations.
How many Anons think these chemicals were kept in Beirut to create some nasty weapons and got destroyed when the black hats, perhaps, panicked at that time?
