Azerbaijan, Baku, Aug. 14 / Trend /

Ukrainian Embassy to Azerbaijan on Tuesday issued a denial of the hidden arms supplies to Armenia.

Embassy of Ukraine to Azerbaijan considers it necessary to state that "a copy of the letter of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine to the Ukrainian head of state, which was posted on August 8, 2012 at one of the Ukrainian websites, is a provocative faked document. According to the embassy, the purpose of this provocation is to damage traditionally friendly Ukrainian-Azerbaijani relations, whose strategic nature for Ukraine's foreign policy is unchanged and priority," the embassy's statement said.

However, despite the fact that the embassy considers the letter "a provocative faked document", the question remains why the information has not been refuted immediately after its publication in the media. It would be more logical that a body, which is directly affected by this fact, in particular, the Defense Ministry, would make an official denial of this information.

News about the content of the letter of illicit arms is actively being discussed in the Armenian media outlets, which write that the purchase of weapons by Armenia from Ukraine is misinformation. At the same time, these media outlets and their commentators intentionally or unwittingly not wishing do not want to see the fact specified in the letter that that the delivery should have been implemented through front companies with forged data on the origin of weapons, rather than directly through Ukraine.

Yesterday, details of the letter of head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, Major-General Sergei Gmyza to President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych on arms supplies to Armenia under a contract between Ukrspetsexport and DG Arms Corporation (the mediator of Armenian Defense Ministry) became known.

The letter offers to use front companies registered in EU and CIS for supplies. The letter contains a scheme of illegal supply of 12 units of multiple Smerch rocket launching systems and their components, as well as 50 Igla MANPADS from Ukraine to Armenia.

As noted in the letter, Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry received information about the contract between the Ukrspetsexport and DG Arms Corporation (the mediator of Armenian Defense Ministry) to supply 12 units of Smerch multiple rocket launching systems and their components, 50 Igla MANPADS, as well as the fact that Armenia has already paid 50 percent of contract value.

At the same time Gmyza indicates that Azerbaijan may be aware of this deal.

Not wanting to jeopardize the military-technical and energy cooperation between Azerbaijan and Ukraine, Ukrspetsexport is invited to "publicly renounce the fact of an agreement with the Armenian side." At the same time the Armenian company is offered to simulate the appeal to arbitration, "the spread among its environment of sharply negative attitude to the leadership of Ukrspetsexport and the Ukrainian side, as an unreliable supplier."

At the same time head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry proposed to carry out the delivery of Smerch sets in a conspiracy from the territory of Moldova, "using front companies registered in the EU or the CIS."

Marking on the products this should be changed, and in the case of disclosure of fraud to conceal origin of Igla MANPADS by warehouses in Libya, looted by rebels of the liberation movement.

A copy of the letter is available to our readers.
