Armenian Air Carrier Supplied Arms to Libya?
The IL-76 that arrived in Moldova from Libya, with the aim of picking up a regular shipment of arms (and it is presumed to go back), belongs to “an Armenian civil air carrier,” said chief of general staff of Moldova’s national army, General Iurie Dominic.
Press secretary of the Department of Civil Aviation in Armenia Nelly Cherchinyan told Epress.am that “only [Armenian national air carrier] Armavia can comment on this matter.” However, calls to Armavia press secretary Nana Avetisova went unanswered.
General Dominic confirmed the fact that where the arms were going was no secret to the air carrier. Citing a Moldovan TV channel’s public report, Interfax reports that Chisinau (Chişinău) sold old, expired weapons to Libya.
