*Ilham Aliyev made an interesting admission regarding the delivery of weapons to Armenia:
“According to the information we have, smuggled weapons have been sent from Georgia territory by civilian and cargo planes. Recently, Armenia bought a plane.
According to the information we have, the plane was purchased for about $ 30-40 million. This plane was bought by wealthy Armenian businessmen living in Russia: Karapetyan, Abrahamyan and others. They send some Armenians living in Russia to fight as mercenaries against us in Karabakh.
In addition, the acquisition of this Il-76 aircraft allowed Armenia to smuggle weapons to Armenia. Because every time you send military goods, this is declared. In their declarations, this is a civilian cargo. However, there are “Kornets” (anti-tank weapons), “Competition” (anti-tank weapons), “Igla” (air defense).
At the same time, according to the information we have, smuggled missiles are being delivered. Therefore, we officially turned to ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization – Ed.) So that ICAO would investigate this issue, stop it. This is considered an international crime. Sending contraband weapons to Armenia is unacceptable. ”
In all fairness, there were IL-76s in the Armenian Air Force, and it would be strange not to use them in strategic transportation.
Well…I don’t want say , see us tomorrow for more of this war, but…
