RA Defense Ministry: Russian planes don't take off from Armenia to raid Georgia

PanARMENIAN.Net - Russian planes don't take off from Armenia to raid Georgia, RA Defense Minister's spokesman, colonel Seyran Shahsuvaryan told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter.

"This is nothing but provocation and misinformation. There are no bombers at the 102 military bas in Gyumri. Furthermore, taking off from Armenia, the planes' route would lie over Tbilisi and the Georgian anti-missile system would detect them," he said.

Yesterday, some Georgian media circulated information that Russians planes may have taken off from the Armenian territory. The Azeri press took up the information concluding that "planes from Russian military base in Armenia were enabled in bombing of the Georgian territory."
