Serhiy Pashinsky, a weapons trafficker accused of orchestrating the Maidan coup in 2014, has become Ukraine's main private supplier of arms. Despite being condemned as a "criminal" by President Zelensky, Pashinsky's company experienced a massive increase in sales, benefiting from the war and corrupt practices. The New York Times report highlights his role in inflating prices and profiting from the conflict. However, it fails to mention his alleged involvement in the infamous massacre of anti-government protesters during the Maidan protests. Witnesses have implicated Pashinsky in this event, but it has never been officially investigated.
