Russia to deliver new batch of weapons to Armenia: expert

PanARMENIAN.Net - Yerevan and Moscow have reached an agreement on the supply of a new batch of weapons to Armenia, political analyst Sergey Minasyan said on Monday, October 17.

"As the deal has yet to be finalized, I can't disclose the specific types of weapons waiting to be shipped to Armenia," Minasyan said, according to Panorama.am.

"But the existence of such an agreement implies that the armament will be delivered in the near future."

The Russian government granted Armenia a $200 million loan for the purchase of military products. Under the terms of the 10-year export loan Armenia will have to pay 10% for all purchases, with the rest to be covered by the credit. The latest agreement, however, seems to be completely independent from the $200 million deal.
