Armenian Deputy Prime Minister Mher Grigoryan has left for Moscow.

APA reports quoting diplomatic sources that although it was stated that Grigoryan's visit was an official meeting with his Russian counterpart Alexei Overchuk, in fact, he left for Russia for another purpose.

Grigoryan, who was going to Moscow on an Armenian civil plane, loaded weapons on the plane and tried to bring it to Armenia via Georgian airspace.

It should be noted that according to the rules established by the International Civil Aviation Organization and the Convention on International Civil Aviation carriage of weapons on civil aircraft is prohibited by law.

APA's Russia bureau sends a request to the Russian Foreign and Defense Ministries in this regard.
