Earlier, President Pashinyan claimed that the planes did not take off from Armenia.
The report shows that fighter jets were sent to Russia on March 23, 2022. They departed from Erebuni airport in Yerevan. At 12:50 local time, four Su-30 fighter jets piloted by Armenian pilots, took off. The jets flew through Martuni and reached their destination in Russia at 13:14.
Satellite images confirm this information as well: on the first image, captured on March 18, 2022, four Su-30 fighter jets can be clearly seen at an airbase in Armenia. On the second image, captured on March 25, the scenery is different – there are no Su-30, which were sent to Russia, and there Mig-29 in their place.
Armenia will be sanctioned in case its participation in aggression against Ukraine is confirmed at an international level.
