Workers at the Galileo Galilei airport in the Italian city of Pisa have protested over the cargo of a flight that was billed as stocking materials for humanitarian relief destined for Ukraine, but which they allegedly found to contain weapons. The protest was organized by the Unione Sindacale di Base (USB) trade union, stating “we strongly denounce this outright falsification, which cynically uses ‘humanitarian’ aid as cover to fuel the war in Ukraine.”
The issue has sparked interest from regional Cinque Stelle (Italy’s Five Star Movement) politicians, who have made inquiries to determine whether the cargo did, in fact, include weaponry.
This comes after at least 27 flights have passed from Pisa to the Rzeszow NATO base in Poland, presumably transporting military equipment of personnel, over the first half of March.
